Backyard ponds and waterfalls go hand in hand like leaves on a tree. Just like the leaves on a tree serve to provide it with essential elements to help it survive, so does the waterfall add to the overall health and beauty of a pond. There are several important reasons why this is the case.

Backyard Ponds and Waterfalls: Promoting Health

Backyard ponds and waterfalls are such a natural choice to go together because of the action of a waterfall. The flowing water helps to oxygenate the water, thus promoting the health and well being of fish and plant life in a pond. The action of the flowing water also serves as a natural filter, keeping the water circulating and clean.

Waterfalls also serve to add a soothing element to a pond with their tranquil sound. It's best to have a waterfall that is not too tall. Too strong a torrent of water is not only hard on the fish and plants, but will be far too loud for the tranquility you are after.

Pre-Made Perfection

Waterfalls today can be constructed using natural stones of course, but there are also waterfall molds and kits made of fiberglass that come preassembled, and can simply be put in place. These pre-molded artificial rock formations not only look just like natural rocks, but are sturdier since they come in one piece. They last a nice long time too.
