Waterfalls | Add a soothing waterfall to your pond, yard or garden

Add a soothing waterfall to your pond, yard or garden

Waterfalls are not only pretty but also a great way to aerate your pond. The shallower depths of a waterfall allow oxygen to penetrate to the water's surface more easily. Obviously, the higher and broader the waterfall, the more opportunity for oxygenation, but even the smallest waterfalls can make a difference in the oxygen content of your pond.

Building Pond Waterfalls

As with the ponds themselves, you have two choices for building pond waterfalls: using preformed waterfall molds or creating your own waterfall with rocks. Again, preformed molds will be easier to set up, but rocks will give you more control over the size and shape of your waterfall.

Elaborate pond waterfalls will probably require major landscaping to ensure that the structure is stable and the water flows correctly. However, smaller pond waterfalls make a fairly easy and inexpensive project for do-it-yourselfers. All you need is a preformed waterfall mold or several large, flat rocks; a submersible pond pump ; and flexible tubing. You can even purchase these items together in a pond waterfall kit, many of which are available online.

A few things to keep in mind when constructing your pond waterfall are:

  • Elevate the backs of spillway rocks, particularly the bottom one, for better water flow. You can do this by wedging small, flat rocks called "shims" under the back edge of the larger spillway rock.
  • Make sure the waterfall levels overhang each other and the bottom level overhangs the pond by at least a few inches. The larger the overhang, the greater the dramatic effect. (Use shims to elevate the back of each level for improved water flow over deeper shelves.)
  • Support the spillway with other rocks or create a berm or small hill for the spillway levels to nest in. You are building a structure, and it needs to be sound.

Creating Backyard Waterfalls

Even people who don't have – and don't want – fish ponds or garden ponds can still have the beauty and ambience of a backyard waterfall. Landscape waterfalls allow homeowners to add the drama of a waterfall to their property without the additional hassle of caring for fish or aquatic plants. Like pond waterfalls, landscape waterfalls are generally made from large, flat rocks, supported by a natural rise in the property. If you have a flat backyard, you can create an artificial rise to house the waterfall.

Creating a landscape waterfall is much the same as making a pond waterfall, with the added step of digging a small pond or pool in which the water can collect before being pumped back through the waterfall. This pond will have to be lined, but need not contain any fish or plants. Usually, edging this pond with rocks similar to those used for the spillway is decoration enough.

Purchasing Garden Waterfalls

For those who want an even easier way to add a waterfall to their landscape design , many companies now offer completely self-contained garden water...
