How to Create a Dry Creek
This dry stream bed looks so natural, you'd think it had always been part of the landscape. But it can be created by nearly any DIY-savvy homeowner. Here's how.
After determining the size and shape of the dry stream bed, excavate 12-15 inches of soil. This can be done with a backhoe or a shovel.
Position four large flat-top rocks so they can support a flagstone bridge. Anchor the rocks in place with cement so they won't move with freezing and thawing.
