Dry Stream

Never a stream, below, simply a low spot in the woods with drainage issues. River rocks & plantings solving drainage issues beautifully.
.
This was the 1st dry stream bed I ever saw, over 2 decades ago. Since then it's become MORE gorgeous while functioning without problem.

A French drain would have been ridiculously expensive, clogged up by now, dotted with water pockets & breeding mosquitoes.

I have always loved dry streams. But then I adore rocks, so that makes sense!
