For creating a good seal you need to apply a foam sealant. The stones should be placed in a layered manner so that it gives a natural look to your waterfall. Once it is over, finally add gravel in the waterfall bed to give earthy appearance. If interested you can also make use of stepping stones.
Once all the construction work is over clean the rocks and remove the extra linear. Now, release the water through the pump placed inside the waterfall. Keep washing away the stream and the rock until the water from pump runs clear. With this step, waterfall is completed.
