The waterfall spillway in this pond project is very dramatic as it has multiple waterfalls spilling into the pond. As this video shows, this was a perfect location for this due to the change in elevation.
A waterfall always looks more natural when it is starting at a higher area. There are actually two waterfalls in the front and another towards the rear.
The height of the waterfall will depend on how high the land behind it is. The waterfall can be anywhere from six inches high to many, many feet. The higher the waterfall display, the more dramatic it will be. <I>However, it is more important for the height to work naturally with the land.
If, possible, remember to orient the waterfall so that it is easily viewed from your house, patio, or other important areas in your landscape. Alternatively, you may place it in an area which becomes more of a destination. Here the waterfall is only seen once you arrive there.
When you create your waterfall, it is best to keep a couple of things in mind.
You can also add fish and plants to your pond. For fish, a pond should be at least two feet deep.
"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant. You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
