Ideas For Plant Placement In Backyard Waterfalls
While most garden ponds and waterfalls are created to look as natural as possible, it can be difficult to create a natural planting scheme as well as natural rock placement. As you can see here, this spillway and stream are lined with rock, boulders, and gravel in a way that creates pockets for the plants to go in. For a backyard garden atmosphere, this looks really good and ties in well with the rest of the landscape.
Of course, in a more natural setting the rocks and plants wouldn't just end at the edge of the waterfall and stream. Even still, a good border of rocks is all that's needed to create a good edge for soil and vegetation. again, every curve can be used to create a pocket for plants.
