Beautiful sheet waterfall with LED light behind it as one example of many great backyard waterfall ideas

Sheet Waterfalls

The water flows over a flat stone in a thin curtain, splashing into the water beneath it. The sound is clearer, more echoing, perfectly disguising the noise from the road. This is a sheet waterfall.

The thin water allows anyone to see the beautiful stonework beneath and with LED lights behind it, it can look even better!

Natural Waterfalls

These waterfalls can make it look like your home was built around the waterfall. The water splashes and cavorts down the rocks in a seemingly chaotic pattern, but it was carefully designed by engineers.

Multiple Drop Waterfalls

If they both seem amazing, you can have both! The water tumbling down the rocks, over a ledge into a sheet, and onto the next level as it flows towards the bottom. Multiple drop waterfalls are a great mixture of natural looking and sheet waterfalls.

Which Idea Is Your Favorite?

Any of these ideas can help transform your backyard into a personal paradise. Whether it’s a place for you to relax or an area to spend time with those closest to you, a backyard waterfall can give it to you.¬†But, maybe you want something else to enhance your yard.
