Does the streambed go clear across the property or just in front of the house? I love it!

The high point is at the bridge/porch extension. Therefore the bridge does not actually span water but has the illusion. we directed drainage flow to both ends of home and than into more elaborate stream beds and falls and outcrops as it flows through backyard which has about 25' of drop.

This was a 70's ranch style and we changed the front porch by extending the covered bridge 90 degrees from existing porch. They have significant drainage issues and the dry stream is to allow for some infiltration and to direct away from home.

Front porch that extends over the dry creek bed to divert water. Like the ability to landscape between home and the winding field stone walkway. Like how the main part of porch extends out past the gable roof and resulting roof line to add dimension. Like how the walkway extends beyond the covered porch to bench by the tree too.

I like wide layered beds. If there is occasion, a dry rock bed is a nice touch. I'm not big on water features (other than a pool) because of the maintenance so a dry rock bed would be preferable to a fake trickling stream.
