Asian Sanctuary

Many different sizes of rocks and boulders were placed with utmost care to mimic the way a natural stream would look with small grasses and carexs lining the sides.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

6. Let them learn through the senses. Successful playscapes allow children to explore the environment with all five senses. Sounds of water splashing, mud slurping, bees buzzing and birds chirping aren't only enticing, but they inspire curiosity. This dry creek is a great and safe place for playing children. Just add a trickle of water from a hose to encourage experimentation or mud making. If a dry creek isn't in the cards, use a large planter pot or fountain with elements like rocks, water and mud.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Gardening for Happy Kids
5. Add rocks. Who doesn’t like to play with rocks? Their various edges are smooth like skin or rough like teeth. Pile them up and make some garden art. Create fences. Build dry streambeds at the base of a downspout to carry water out into the garden. Rocks rock.
