How do I get my waterfall to flow that way I want it to?

How To Create The Perfect Waterfall Curtain

When you're creating a waterfall, you'll need to decide what type of waterfall curtain you want. Water doesn't always flow in the same manner. You can create a number of different waterfall curtain types – a smooth curtain, a broad curtain, an unbroken curtain or a narrow, frothy curtain. The trick is in knowing how to create the flow of water you want.

You can experiment with different stone types, angles and placements to get your waterfall to run just so. In general, a smooth curtain of water requires a smooth, flat stone. A narrow frothy curtain of water requires a stone with bumps and ridges that funnels water to its center.
