Pool Waterfalls

Swimming Pool Rock Waterfalls

Bring your backyard to life with the sound of rushing water. At Van Kirk & Sons Pools & Spas, we can build everything from waterslides to grottos to fountains and take pride in gorgeous constructions that enhance your pool area. We can also help you enhance the space with other details, like LED lighting, that make your space even more engaging, even at night.

Benefits of a Rock Waterfall for a Pool

When designing a new pool or upgrading an existing one, consider incorporating a rock waterfall. Van Kirk & Sons Pools & Spas has decades of experience working with homeowners to make their dream pools a reality. 

We’ll help you design a rock waterfall for your pool that provides the following benefits:

  • Enhances aesthetic appeal: Whether you choose a simple fountain or an entire pool grotto, including rocks in your design enhances the beauty of your pool area.
  • Make your pool even more fun: If kids — and kids-at-heart — use your pool, consider adding a rock waterslide that allows people to enter your swimming pool with a splash. 
  • Adds natural elements: Whether you use authentic rocks or faux, a rock waterfall adds a touch of nature to your yard, especially when you incorporate other natural elements into your design to create a luxurious swimming and relaxing area.

Rock Waterfall Ideas

Whether you have room for a large waterfall that acts as your pool’s focal point or want to install something more compact, you have options. 


A rock fountain is simple, featuring an arrangement of rocks with rushing water. If you have limited space for new fixtures, a fountain is a good option for a smaller pool. 

Pool Grotto

Have plenty of space or want to make a big visual impact? Consider a pool grotto with a small cave for people to swim into. If you install the grotto on the pool’s shallow end, you can incorporate seating into the cave so you can sit and relax in the water, protected from the sun’s heat.

Rock Waterslide

To maximize fun, consider working a waterslide into your rock grotto. These water features let you climb up the rocks, then ride the slide back down into the water. 

Backyard Rock Waterfall Design Ideas

Are you unsure what you want from your rock waterfall? We can help. Our team will work with you to transform the roughest sketches into a stunning rock waterfall for your pool. 

We’ll consider your budget and overall project goals when making our recommendations to you. For example, we’ll help you weigh the pros and cons of natural versus faux rock and can help you decide on the right size and placement for your waterfall.

We’ll also give you ideas for enhancements to add to your pool waterfall, such as LED lighting to illuminate your pool at night and create visual interest.
