The garden waterfall is an element that reproduces the same effect as natural waterfalls but in a reduced version, which can be easily inserted in your garden. The waterfall introduces a continuous sound of water, when chosen in stone, it perfectly integrates within a natural context such as the garden. Stone, a natural element, is shown to be quite resistant over time and does not change its appearance at all. To create a stone waterfall, you must first have the right boulders to recreate a rather pleasant effect. The stone waterfalls contrast with the plastic waterfalls, which although reproducing the same shape, are made of plastic material. The choice between the waterfall made of stone and the one made of plastic completely related to the tastes of the customer and also to the budget he intends to spend. Inside a garden, even if it is not a water garden, the waterfall has an aspect that allows you to have a pleasant relaxation area, where, perhaps, by inserting a garden lounge, you can rest and relax in the company of friends. The pleasant sound of flowing water, associated with the visual effect of the water jump, allows you to have a truly magical corner, even more if you decide to illuminate it to make it clearly visible even at night.
The stone waterfalls can be an important and strongly characterizing element of the garden or just a complement that can be added at a later stage. When it comes to a water garden, the stone waterfall becomes a focal point on which to focus one’s attention, especially as it will be surrounded by a series of plants that will make this corner even more interesting. The stone waterfall can be made using even simple elements, first of all it is essential to have stones of the right size to create the jump of the waterfall. The size of the waterfall must be proportional to the space available, it is not very pleasant to see a waterfall of disproportionate dimensions inside a small garden also because it would take up too much space that could be used for the subdivision of other more usable spaces. By going to a shop specializing in outdoor stones, you can find the stones to make your own waterfall. The stones must be placed at the top and the water must flow over them and then fall into a container where it will be collected. The operation of the waterfall made possible through the use of a small pump that allows the water to rise up to the top and then return to the same position, thus having a continuous flow of the same water. The stones on the top must be firmly fixed, the water collection container can also be made of stone, to give a more natural look to the whole.

The cascade of water has a very particular effect it is admired during the day but becomes even more scenic if admired during the night. To be able to admire it during the night it is necessary to have an adequate lighting system that can create a particular effect in this area. There are some lights, very similar to small circular lights, which can be installed along the perimeter of the waterfall to emphasize its presence, if instead you want to focus attention on the water jump, then it will be essential to illuminate the waterfall from above. , perhaps creating a support structure where a spotlight will project the light from top to bottom. The lighting is used to make a dark space in the garden usable, which still deserves particular attention as it is particularly pleasant both during the day and during the night. The waterfall can be left in continuous operation even during the winter period, avoiding for operation during the coldest periods when the water could freeze. If the waterfall is made by specialized technicians for the construction of water gardens, they will be able to recommend the best lighting method themselves and will certainly also be able to illustrate through brochures what the final result will be. Do-it-yourself work could be very interesting for those who find it particularly stimulating to complete their garden with similar elements, and by going to specialized shops, they will still receive adequate information on choosing one material rather than another.
