Formal vs. Informal Waterfalls
Did you know there is a delineation between formal and informal waterfalls? We have the capabilities of building a waterfall in a formal or informal style. But what is this difference exactly? Well, a formal waterfall is constructed to look like a staircase and is characterized by geometric lines and right angles. These formal waterfalls are often made of brick, poured concrete, or blocks of stone.
When it comes to an informal waterfall, those designs will look more naturalistic. The sort of waterfall you would find out in nature on a hike. The common materials for informal waterfalls are rocks, boulders, gravel and driftwood.
When we create a waterfall in your backyard, that waterfall needs to flow into something. This something is a pond. Our pond landscaping services are also award-winning and will help create the full environment you want in your backyard. The pond and waterfall should compliment each other. Our landscapers can create a waterfall that flows into a pond and set the style of your backyard.
Tips for Waterfall Designs
As with any sort of landscaping, if done incorrectly it reflects poorly on the yard itself. There are different factors that go into creating the best looking waterfall. One aspect we must consider is the height. If the waterfall is too tall in the current environment, it will overshadow the pond. But if it is too small, it will simply disappear and not be noticeable. So we must strike that balance. The height of the waterfall also impacts the sound and water loss.
As professionals when it comes to waterfall landscaping on Long Island, we know a trick or two to make sure it comes out the way you want it. Here are some general tips we follow and will share in an effort to help create the most beautiful waterfall in your backyard.
- Keep the waterfall in scale with the pond.
- For the most natural look, build the waterfall on a slope.
- So the plants do not get damaged from the waterfall, place them further away.
- In order to avoid excessive splashes and water loss, make the pond deeper.
- If you want to amplify the sounds of the waterfall landscaping in your backyard, leave a hollow space behind the falls.
- For more sound, simply increase the height of the waterfall.
