I love this look and have incorporated it into almost every garden I've owned. Depending on the garden, I used it as a small accent or a larger focal point. One way people go wrong with this look is using the same sized rocks, not using enough of them, or making straight lines--all not found in nature--so it looks much too contrived. Different sized rocks, squiggly banks, being generous with the amount of rocks used is a must. Do it right to get the "look".

peggysueh If you narrow your channel, the sediments will not accumulate. Find a clean spot along your current channel and use that for your guide. No sediment = no weeds. It takes an understanding of hydrology to deal with this issue. We are Biologists. Houzz didn't allow us to use that title so we went with the next best thing.

As far as channel shape ideas, this project discusses what real streams look like...

scoutstella, that's probably what I should do, although most kits don't come with the pressure regulator, timer, or filter. All essential to really use the system effectively. Those items will at least double if not triple your initial investment.

Well, we had a "professional" landscape gardener put our drip hoses in and they fell apart by the second year, now she want to just put in a overground hose with a sprinkler, I feel like she doesn't know what she doing--you guys here make it seem so much simpler than she has, should I get rid of her?
