Backyard Waterfalls


One of the things we all love is backyard waterfalls and pictures of them - and there is no finer way to design your own than seeing what other folks have done with theirs.

Here are some pond pictures of backyard waterfalls and a form where you can upload your own pics to share with the world.

This pond waterfalls is part of a rather large system at Montreal Botanic Garden.  You can see the flow rate isn't too high (see the water just trickliing over the edge) or too low (not dripping but trickling in a stream)  This is a balance we shouild aim for.  The reason I put this picture here is because of the surrounding landscaping and how natural it looks.  If you're going to be doing this in your backyard, then planting up to the edges of the waterfall is important.



This Wall Fountain waterfall is much more modern and a work of art. But again, the flow rate of the water has been adjusted to match the design and function of the waterfall.



Another Naturalistic Pond Waterfall - this is a west coast garden and the landscape design here forces you to view the waterfall from a little closer than I'm taking the picture. You have to walk to the far side of the pond to really view it. This is just one small way of creating a "different look" in the garden, of separating different elements so you can't see them all at the same time.   The waterfalls is in the far corner.
