Living Water Landscape Service
Living Water Landscape Service has been serving Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Paw Paw, Mattawan & Lawton, Michigan (MI) areas for close to two decades; and they know that as a result of uneducated installers, or poor installation techniques, or even maintenance neglect, ponds, waterfalls and streams do occasionally require repairs. Liner tears and the breakdown of equipment are issues we see often with damaged or improperly operating water features, although the shifting of pebbles, rocks, and even land can also lead to substantial problems.
Regardless of the issues that have led to the malfunction of your water feature, the experience and unique training of our team allow us to diagnose and fix your problem quickly and accurately.
Unlike traditional landscape designers and general contracting firms, our exclusive focus on water gardens allows us to understand and embrace a full ecosystem approach to water features. To ensure both enjoyment and sustainability, our products and solutions are engineered to emphasize a natural approach to water capture, circulation, filtration, plants, rocks, gravel, and even fish.

If you notice you have to add water daily, or hear the "hissing" of your water fill valve constantly running, (after properly setting the water level) you may have a leak, most of which occur along the perimeter of the waterfall and stream. These leaks are generally due to the ground settling, which causes the water to trickle over the edge of the liner. These leaks can be easily fixed.
- Check the perimeter of the pond, waterfall, or stream for any wet areas. This is usually a good indicator that water is leaking over the liner.
- Check to make sure any slow-moving sections of the stream/waterfall have not become obstructed by leaves, plants, or other debris. This can cause the water to back up and leak over the edge of the liner.
- Once you have found the leak, pack additional soil under the liner to raise the edge above the water level. Hide the exposed liner by replacing the gravel and adding mulch.
- If you have plants growing in your BIOFALLS® filter, it is common for their growth to displace the water, causing it to flow over the back side of the filter. Simply remove enough of the plants to lower the water level.

Do you have green pond water or black pond water in your pond? We can figure out why and repair the pond ecosystem to resolve these issues.
