building a warerfall - need some more help

I am not sure about stepping the waterfall since we had already cut out the slope. It's pretty steep. I thought about just creating a "run-off" with smaller rocks. My DH thinks the slope is too steep and will wash the rocks off. I thought maybe I could put liquid rubber or silicone on the liner and get the rocks to stick but he said that it wouldn't hold the rocks on. Any ideas on this? Thanks!

Black expanding waterfall foam. Available at Lowes, Home Depot, or any ponding store. Use it under the rocks, and it both keeps them in place and channels water over the rocks instead of under them or around them. Good stuff. Just be sure to wear latex gloves when doing this. That stuff really sticks!
