Rustic Waterfalls Add Drama to a Landscape

Most people who want water in their landscape choose the sound of a waterfall as the number one choice for their desire. Backyard rustic waterfalls can take the shape of small, babbling brooks or loud, thunderous falls. Rock choice makes a big difference in the appearance of your waterfall, and many homeowners choose a rustic appearance for their water feature.

Cool, dark rocks create an air of intrigue and mystery to this suburban backyard water feature. Note how the water is divided between the crags of the rock as it flows downstream.

A Boring Backyard is Transformed with Refreshing Pond and Waterfalls

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. April is a great month to consider what changes you'd like to make in your backyard. Since we love water features, we can't think of a better way to add beauty and interest to your outdoor living space than with some type of running water. Here's an example of how a boring expanse of grass became a gorgeous oasis in the suburbs of Chicago.

This landscape used to be all lawn and no pizzazz. Now, the homeowner can sit by their watery paradise on a  rustic bench. A variety of plants helps to blend the pond into the surrounding landscape.
