Do you have drainage issues on your property? Excess water can be a concern, pooling in areas that can ruin your landscaping, damage your home and attract unwanted pests into your yard. While there are many ways to manage drainage problems, none are quite as beautiful as a dry creek bed. When installed by a talented landscape design company, it can become an attractive focal point while still giving you the drainage solution you need to manage your excess water problems.
Design Ideas for Dry Creek Beds
Although any professionally installed dry creek bed may resolve your drainage problem, why stop at function when you can add beauty as well? Consider these ideas to make your new creek bed a lovely addition to your landscape design while reducing water pooling in your yard.
- Curving creek. Give your creek bed a natural, meandering look of a natural creek by curving it through your yard. Why have a straight line when you can add a softer, more appealing design?
- Choose delightful stones. Talk to your landscaper about colorful stones that can brighten your creek bed. Many varieties of river rock can come in an assortment of browns, grays and reds to add color to your creek.
- Borders. Add some unique borders to your dry creek bed to blend it into your landscaping. Boulders can be great accent pieces, along with strategic plants and other landscaping elements.
With the help of your professional landscaper, you can create a drainage option with a dry creek bed that blends perfectly into your landscape design, instead of detracting from it. For many homes, it is the ultimate blend of form and function to solve a drainage problem.
