Shady Dry Creek Bed – Erosion Control
The front yard of this home had a drainage problem and needed some erosion control. The downspouts were not channeled away from the house and this caused water damage to the foundation. Foundation damage can cause significant problems to your home, so we got to work for these home owners. We directed the downspouts to the side yard and added a dry creek bed with plants to ensure no water lands anywhere near the home. Water was diverted away and we were able to add some custom stonework that will bring beauty for years to come.
A dry creek bed is a landscaping feature designed to mimic the appearance of a natural stream or riverbed without the presence of water. Typically created using rocks, stones, and occasionally drought-resistant plants, a dry creek bed serves both aesthetic and functional purposes. It helps manage water drainage by directing and controlling the flow during rain or irrigation, preventing erosion and water damage in landscaped areas. Additionally, dry creek beds can add beauty to outdoor spaces, providing a natural and appealing focal point in gardens or yards. Want more inspiration? Check out HGTV’s pictures here.
