Water can flow out of unconventional places, and it can also flow into seemingly solid objects. The pondless, or disappearing, waterfall is increasingly common in contemporary landscape design, but we’ve only begun to explore the possibilities. Above is a simple example, where the water flows into a stone-filled basin housing a hidden pump that recirculates the water back to its source. The counterintuitive image of water flowing into a solid object is always visually arresting.

Looking for more river-like water features to inspire you? Water falleth from it. The backyard water experience doesn't have to stop with a single water feature. Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture married a waterfall with a hot tub. Water generously flows into a thick pile of pebbles to delight the eyes and ears, even when the hot tub isn't in use.

Style Secret: Water FeaturesJapanese style emphasizes strong connections with nature, and water — from bubbling fountains to rushing streams — helps to create a tranquil atmosphere. Whether they're in an interior room or an exterior living space, water features also bring a subtly dramatic note that can't help but capture attention.East meets West: A fountain isn't the only way to bring flowing water indoors. Try a freestanding or built-in water wall, a trough that recirculates water or an indoor-outdoor rain shower. Or get creative and choose artwork that depicts streaming water or waves — it's the next best thing to the actual wet stuff.
