How to add a water fall to your
yard in 6 easy steps !

Faux rock waterfall units are mostly pre-assembled and ready to be placed almost anywhere in your yard. No landscapers or big machinery needed ! Installation is a breeze. They are elegant in design and built from long-lasting composite construction materials. The Cody Falls unit has white water crashing from the top section leading to a spectacular sheet of water. The pool-side units use your existing pool return water and the free standing units need no water hook up at all - simply fill once with a garden hose and they re-circulate the water themselves with their own built in pumps ! The Switch Back Falls unit is shown below.  It does not require a swimming pool or water hook-up.  It is self-contained.

Add a touch of class to your backyard with very little effort or expense! Visit our web site Waterfall Section for additional models and specifications. Common carrier trucking charge is additional and varies per unit. Call or email for a delivery price quote.

Please note there are about 3 megs of photos below, so it may take a minute or so to load in, depending on your internet connection.

Step 1
Select the area of your yard that may need a little sprucing-up. Maybe an overgrown area that has been neglected and would benefit from a nice new water feature.









 
You may want to take a digital photo of the area of your yard you want to improve.  Then if you are frisky with Photoshop, simply copy/paste a waterfall photo from our web site into the photo of your yard you took.

In this instance, the homeowner did not like the waterfall unit shown on the left (digitally installed) and opted for the Switch Back model instead.

Step 2
Clear out the old brush or foliage from the area and decide which waterfall will best fit your space. Remember, you will need 110 volt electric available nearby.
Step 3
Place weed guard on the ground under the area where the waterfall will be. In our example we are spreading red rock around. You could use wood chips instead. Place waterfall you have selected in the area and adjust for best view. Here we have used the “Switchback Falls” unit.
Step 4
Remove any unsightly items like this hose hanger from your soon-to-be “natural area”. Try to remove or hide things like electrical outlets, water spigots, visible lighting, etc. Try to make space look as realistic as possible.
Step 5
Spread the rocks around the waterfall, making sure to cover the weed guard underneath. Don’t skimp on the rocks. You don’t want to see any empty spaces of the ground. Run electricity to the waterfall to power the pump and fill with water using a garden hose. Test unit to make sure it works and that the water flows nicely.
Step 6
Add some real rocks around the faux rock waterfall to make a more realistic look. Add some additional flowers, plants or bushes to finish off area. Then sit back and enjoy that previously forgotten about corner of your yard with the calming sights and sounds of a waterfall. And the best part is that you did it yourself for up to 90% less of what a landscaper would have charged to do with real rock - and you get exactly the same effect. Sometimes even better !
If you have added a light to the unit you picked out, you will notice how nice it looks (and sounds) at night time !

This whole project cost the homeowner under $2000 to do.....complete.  Compare that to the $9500 that the landscaper wanted to build the same thing out of real rocks.  A BIG savings !
