To many stones, unnatural looking.. Never create a waterfall that is that straight in pic three. U have the basics down pump liner installation etc.. now the hard part is learning how to make it natural it takes years of experience but if you stick with it you will learn. A great book for beginers is rick bartels the Rise method.

Exactly. The ultimate aim should be to craft ponds, waterfalls and streams so they blend in with the surrounding landscape giving the viewer the impression that they have been there all along. You are looking for a different visual imprint than a Hardscape feature.

I am amazed that the waterfall in Pic #1 does not have leaks.

I agree too many small rocks cluttering up in the last pic.
