Depends on what overhangs it...This garden is in full sun --- it hasn't any overhanging trees. With wind, some Eucalyptus leaves and light branchlets fall within the walls; otherwise, only the leaf litter from the maples are generated there. The garden gets weekly maintenance, but it's light. Annual leaf drop maybe generates an extra 15 minutes of leaf litter cleanup per week over a 4-6 week period.

These are green beach pebbles from Indonesia. Try your local stone or landscape supplier. These were imported directly from Indonesia, but they are available stateside.

Add a specimen tree. Create one or more focal points along your creek bed by adding a rare or colorful tree. If you are working with a large area, a trio of similar but not identical trees staggered along the bed can make quite an impact.Consider Japanese maples (Acer palmatum cvs, zones 5 to 8) or weeping and contorted trees to add that final layer of interest to your dry creek bed.More: Protect a Precious Resource With a Rain Garden
