Have you ever considered installing a dry creek bed in your yard? It’s not as hard as you might think. With some help from Asphalt Materials, and 4 simple steps, you can add a beautiful accent to your yard that will look great for years to come.
A lot of us love the visual appeal of a stream cutting through the yard, but we can’t be bothered with piping water through all the time. With a dry stream bed you can achieve the same look, without the maintenance and inconvenience of installing pipes and fountains.
A dry stream can add dimensions to your yard and serve to accent other features, like a flower bed or a tree. By creating a sense of motion simply with the undulating line cutting through your yard, you can have a sense of flow and balance to your yard that’s hard to duplicate any other way.
Furthermore, when it’s made correctly, a dry stream in your yard can help to preserve the existing landscaping work by guarding against erosion and creating a productive way for water to drain from your yard. It can prevent problems with minor flooding when storms blow in for the season. The extra stones will also keep your soil in place. Placed under the downspout of your storm drain, you can turn an area that is usually an eyesore into a charming and functional space.
