When lining the creek edges did you use concrete to the rock in place? - I am looking to use natural creek rock to line a creek behind my home and it has been suggested that I use concrete to secure the rocks lining the creek to prevent further erosion.

If it is a natural creek then I would not recommend concreting the rocks in place. It would be better to use a rock that is a little bigger to ensure that the rocks will not move (if possible). This will ensure that the natural creek keeps its natural look :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Create a mini destination at the end of a path. Place a bench or chair at the end of a meandering path for an instant focal point in the front or side yard. Keep a cozy throw and a cushion on hand for chilly afternoons, and add a small side table if you like to bring along a warm beverage.
