Some ideas for backyard waterfalls include adding a small pond to the waterfall, creating stone borders or using natural pieces to create a woodland effect. Another idea is to add a waterfall to the swimming pool.
For small ponds with waterfalls, a raised base must be built for the water to pour into the pond. Using large stones for the base creates a natural look. The base may be constructed so that the water falls from a cliff-like structure or with several small steps for the water to flow down. Using stones to create a border around a long and staggered waterfall gives it a stream-like effect that is aesthetically pleasing.
