Transform your backyard into an aquatic paradise with the addition of a tranquil waterfall. The soft sounds of a waterfall will bring countless hours of peace and relaxation into your life. It’s an appealing addition to any landscape and certain to become a focal point for parties and other gatherings.Here are some great waterfall features to get the ideas flowing.
By using rough rocks, you can create a natural waterfall with pools at the top and bottom that will make a perfect home for koi and other fish. Moreover, the sounds of the falling water will create a soothing natural symphony.
Another popular feature is a paver patio nestled beside the plunge pool. This allows you to sit down and dip your toes into the water on a hot summer day. It also gives you a place where you can set up your patio furniture and enjoy the ambiance with your guests.
If you have limited space in your landscape, think about using a face made from rock or other materials built into the side of your home to create a water wall. The water will flow gently from the roof and cascade into a small pool at the bottom. This feature can be coupled with a fireplace to create an exhilarating balance between fire and water that is guaranteed to bring any evening to life.
Many outdoor waterfalls include underwater lighting. This is especially stunning when a waterfall features a series of steps. The shimmering lights below the waves will create a moving effect that will flow across the landscape.
Wood is another beautiful addition to a backyard waterfall. Adding logs or pieces of driftwood creates natural beauty by mimicking forest and woodland environments, especially when paired with river rock and lush foliage. Having a natural waterfall facilitates a sense of harmony and balance with nature that everyone in the family is guaranteed to enjoy.
