    In the next couple of weeks I plan to toy around in my back yard with a pondless waterfall. Can you guys give me some helpful pointers on what to do and not do.

    I haven't made it too far yet. Just going to start playing around here this weekend. I may have room for something about 3 feet tall, 4-5 feet wide and front to back 4-5 feet. The area I have to work with is a semi circle of the corner of the deck if that makes sense. There is space between my deck and my patio.

    Pretty constrained area to work with, especially for a waterfall. Possible, but could be tricky. I would recommend possibly a bubbler of come sort. Let's see what some of the other guys have to offer.

    Is that a stamped concrete patio?

    What space is available under the stairs?

    I'm with Tadpole, just do a rock bubbler. That space is almost to small for a waterfall, and design wise it'll look out of place.

    ^^Agreed with both guys. Too small for a fall, but a bubbler would be nice and still get you some sound.

    Yes, its stamped patio.

    There is a little space under the steps but nothing major.

    I'm open to options here. I originally left the space to put a small pond but my wife doesn't want that with the 6 month old baby. She wants to make it a sand box so I am trying to figure out a pondless option.

    Do you guys have projects you have done with a bubbler like you mentioned.
