Cool. Is there a pump or something that brings water from the pond to the top of the waterfall?

Very creative If you could somehow hide the hose though, that'd be even better,.

If you slightly covered the hose on the other end in a certain way, you may also get a wider spray

Very nice work. Is the hose what runs the water from the main pond to the fall, or is it there to fill the pond up? If it runs water to the fall, then you might want to consider burying it a few inches underground to make things look nicer.

I like it honestly. I'd only tell you to just put a hose fom the pond to the waterfall with a pump. It will make it active and fun to watch.
