August 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #78: Design Considerations For Garden Waterfalls

Tip of the Week

Besides proportions, scale, pump size and impact, you also have to consider the overall aesthetic of garden waterfalls. Garden waterfalls should appear to be natural. A waterfall can have a spectacular impact or be a subtle presence. Either way, waterfalls are most successful when they appear integrated with their setting. Also, keep the source of the waterfall discreet. Consider having the waterfall emerge from well-positioned rocks or another subtle place. When an observer doesn’t notice where your waterfall is coming from, you’ve got a successful design.
