Maymont's Japanese Garden is at the bottom of the hill, and against the hillside is a delightful waterfall. Although it appears natural, it was artfully created to enhance the garden. (Did I mention that the people who built the estate had a lot of money?)

A century ago, water was pumped from Richmond's Kanawha Canal into a water tower on the hill, which still stands near the carriage house. In modern times a recirculating system was installed.
