Dry creek for rainwater management. Off our roof
Wonderful waterfall into dry river bed. Simple, interesting
How expensive is running water can the tank take it?
Become acquainted with how water moves. The first step in designing a functional and aesthetically pleasing dry creek bed is to study natural water features in addition to well-designed water gardens. Perhaps you are fortunate enough to live near mountains or a river. Arrange a day trip, equipped with
with a camera, sketch pad and notebook. Take note of how water moves: how it takes the path of least resistance, how it pools and scurries around boulders, and how it pushes branches and small rocks, creating ever-changing formations as it rushes down.

The larger rock placement as the creek takes a turn
wildlife into the garden, too, from frogs and toads to dragonflies. If you have young kids, make sure the pond is covered for safety. Alternatively, build a shallow stream-style water feature, like this one, that will give children the chance to play and paddle with minimal risk.
Notice the array of sizes and shapes of rocks found along a stream. Take note of which plants grow nearby: their size, shape, color and texture.

"stones" in the path are recycled concrete. The boulders not only add a natural look to the space that plays off the concrete, but they also line a dry creek bed that provides drainage for runoff. The soft plant palette is drought tolerant, with pops of purple to draw the eye toward the house. Planting note:
