Adding a waterfall to your outdoor entertaining space can be a great way to add an atmosphere fit for entertaining, and also add value to your home. A great entertaining space is one of the first things that draws someone to a home. You can design it just for yourself and your family as a way to relax and kick back, or you can design a backyard oasis for entertaining large groups of people. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that you can customize your own backyard waterfall.
The stones you choose for your waterfall can give it a custom design. Large rocks can be used for a very natural looking waterfall, or smaller rocks can be used to give a quieter feel. We have many different kinds of rock for you to use in your design, and we will be happy to help you pick the best fit for your custom design.
Another way to add your own touch to your waterfall is by adding lighting. There are a variety of color options, plus a wide range of light fixtures to add drama to your landscape. Lights can be placed strategically around the waterfall to draw attention to some of the stonework or other features, or you can put lighting right underneath the waterfall, drawing attention for late night entertaining. You can use just a few lights, or light up the entire thing. The possibilities are endless.
In A Pool Or Alone?
Outdoor waterfalls can be designed to go along with your pool, hot tub or spa, or they can simply stand alone to create ambience for your guests. Waterfalls with a pool can be placed at the edge of an in-ground pool, or right smack in the middle. The location will determine how the waterfall is viewed, and how many different sides will be part of your design. A waterfall in the middle of a pool will need to be viewed from all angles. A waterfall on the side of a pool usually only has one side as a focal point.
Waterfalls without a pool have the same considerations. If they are against a fence or a wall in your yard, chances are you will only be viewing one side from your entertainment space. If it is located in the middle of your yard, you may need to consider all the viewing angles.
