It’s actually simple to build a small waterfall for a pond using a few repurposed items like a pond pump. Besides, you can also use an old coal burner fireplace and some other items to create the beautiful water feature over your small backyard pond. This small waterfall setup can be your favorite as it’s really easy to access. You can easily change it whenever you want something new. Another great thing of the small waterfall is that the fish really love playing in the falling water. The following are the further details about small waterfall ideas for a pond or water feature.
Firstly, choose something to be your waterfall focal point. You can use an antique coal burner for decoration and remember that it doesn’t control the waterfall. It will help keep the paint tray in place. For the waterfall tray, you can use a clean metal paint roller tray. You need to bend down the lip of this waterfall tray so the water will fall back into the pond. Then, you have to pond pump with enough hose to reach from the pump to the paint tray. To ensure it can carry water that height and distance, you can check the pump information. Finally, rocks to hold the pump hose safely in place.
In planning and applying small waterfall ideas, you have to focus on 2 structures namely the cascading structure for the waterfall itself and the pool into which the water falls. The cascading structure is actually the more difficult to build. Right after those 2 structures are in place, homeowners can use a pump in the pool to keep water re-circulating from the pool to the top of the small waterfall. The reverberation of your undersized cascade can attract more birds. If you’re lucky enough, you will have lineups of them waiting for their turn to bathe.
