Don’t forget to think about the drainage system as well as the maintenance. For most of the dropped flowers and leaves will spread around your waterfall. The filter and pump are needed to accommodate such need. You may place some big trees near the falling rock waterfall to make it look fresh and green. Surrounding the waterfall can be decorated by using some colorful flowers like lily, hibiscus, rose, Japanese iris, cardinal flower, spice bushes, horsetails, sweet flag, winterberry shrubs, and many more. You may also combine all of the flowers above with some other plants. You may place some submerged plants. They are useful to slow down the growth of the algae so that you do not have to clean it too often. Some submerged plants that you can get are the hornwort, eelgrass, milfoil, and also pondweeds.

You may also beautify the pond of the falling rock waterfall by placing some floating plants. They are functioned to reduce the growth of the algae for they will absorb more nutrient and oxygen from the water. The choices include the frog’s bit, water hyacinth, duckweed and also water fern. This falling rock waterfall can be a great gathering place for entertaining the guest, relaxing space, or holding a garden party. To accommodate such purposes, I think you should make this falling rock waterfall more comfortable and convenient not only to view but also to accommodate the people. You may need to place some patios deck located in this place. If the weather is too cold on the backyard, it will be a good idea if you can get the patio equipped with a heater on your falling rock waterfall garden.
