However, you can create amazing visuals to go with your garden that concentrate on water. They are called waterfalls.
Of course, the size of your property dictates the sophistication of the waterfall that is created, but you can have some style of waterfall regardless of the size of your land.
One visually striking waterfall that can be created on a large or small property is the “Water Wall.” They are not that difficult to create and they can be integrated with existing structures or you can take a little time to create a foundation for one. Some examples include:
