Materials Used:

-  Wood Screws -  Liquid Cement Color -  Concrete Mix -  Concrete Mold -  Mortar (2 40lb bags) -  Purple Primer -  Medium Clear pvc cement

Tools Suggested:

Step 1: Choose the Location

First things first, decide where to put your waterfall.

Next, it’s time to make some artificial rocks out of concrete. Begin by mixing your concrete, and coloring it if you’d like.

Step 2: Make Pond Rocks

Step 3: Create The Waterfall Fountain

To make the water flow and “fall” out of the rock instead of shoot out at the top of the waterfall, we divided the supply line 4 ways with some 1″ T-fittings and 1″ elbows.
