Tranforming a boggy backyard into integrated water features.

River Bed Water Garden repairs what was once a backyard known to flood regularly.  Our goal was to redirect large amounts of water and create two ponds.  We installed a dry-river bed.  The stone path fills with rainwater or snow melt and dissipates into the ground below, deep watering plant material. The ponds help retain water and ramp up the design factor.  When the riverbed is dry it serves as a pathway. Frogs, toads, fish and birds love their habitat!
