The famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright created Fallingwater in 1935, a house that uniquely incorporates a Pennsylvanian waterfall into its design. With an open stairway leading down to the water itself, and its unique position on top of the waterfall, the tranquil view is incredible. You’d be hard pressed to find a better example of a waterfall and a house being integrated so seamlessly.

Landscaping typically involves flowers and trees, but if you’re willing to shell out some major money, there’s no reason you can’t add a beautiful fountain to your front walk. Fill the pond with some gorgeous koi fish, and you have the foundation for a beautiful garden.

Indoor Waterfall Accessories

If you don’t have a famous architect, or land that happens to have a natural waterfall, don’t fret, as there are still plenty of options. You can literally bring a waterfall into your living room, with a pane of glass and a water pump that will trickle water day and night, providing a blanket of natural sounding background noise and a natural aesthetic.
