Water features are a great addition to any backyard, but they can often be too expensive or time consuming to have installed for you. Cut out some of the middlemen and the expensive prices and take a few days to make your very own backyard waterfall idea! Here are some fun designs to get your creative juices flowing.
Waterfall and Pond
Get the best of both worlds by building a waterfall and a decent-sized pond for your backyard. Most waterfall features have some sort of pond, but do a little more work and make your pond as fancy as the waterfall! Use rocks and plants that complement the colors in your home and yard.
This is a small and simple waterfall design that is just as classy as any other option. Because it’s so small, it’s not too difficult to make. Put this design in the perfect spot of your yard to get that relaxing gurgling noise that everyone likes without spending too much time or money.
If simple’s not your thing, then try a waterfall that stretches across the yard! This is a tiered waterfall idea that is great for large open backyards. If you have the space, plant lots of colorful flowers around the water feature to make it even more beautiful!
If you have some empty spaces between your plants and bushes that you want to take care of, why not put a waterfall there! This design is small and quaint, so you can really build it anywhere you want without causing much of a disruption.
This design requires a little more time and expertise, but it’s for sure a beautiful option for your backyard. If you have a large, central area where this waterfall can be seen 360 degrees around, that’s even better!
The water is just as beautiful as the feature in this design! It’s also a very modern and chic addition to your backyard. Put some complementing stones at the bottom or flowers around the waterfall to make it even more eye-catching.
This is a fun and creative design for your backyard waterfall. Take a stick of bamboo, hang it between two logs (or other bamboo sticks!), work some pipe magic, and get a great looking waterfall for your garden.
This idea is similar to the elevated waterfall design, but it’s taken to the next level with a full-blown island theme. Take some tiki torches, maybe some seating stones, and make an awesome island waterfall for your backyard.
