Backyard Oasis Ideas – Your yard is your oasis, your little piece of sovereign land that you can design any way you want. The addition of a waterfall enhances its landscape, creates relaxing sounds and attracts birds, insects, and small mammals, even to its patio. The use of natural stones to create that waterfall, whether smooth river stones or rough cut rocks, gives more of a return to nature feel to your personal space in open spaces.
Create your own little piece of happiness backyard by building a rock River waterfall that cascades into a small pond. River stones are smooth, having been eroded by the action of river water. The waterfall is the same principle as the use of a glass of rock where the grain softens the rough edges. Like rocks removed from a glass before final polishing, the immersion of river stones in water enhances the colors.
The easiest way to create your backyard waterfall and a pond is to buy an insert prepared beforehand with a water pump, dig a hole in which you want to place your pond and the insert. Leave enough space for your waterfall and plants to create a natural environment. The height and width of the waterfall will determine what kind of sound the water source makes. Add the fish to your pond if it is large enough and maybe a water plant or two. Cleverly landscaped garden ponds mimic the real thing quite well.
