Dry riverbeds are a big advantage for your property for two major reasons. One, it takes care of wet areas, draining water underground and two, the pebbles make a garden come to life, combined with the correct planting and rockery, it looks like a dry riverbed and is much more appealing than the standard boring bark and shrubs. When the pebbles are wet they come to life displaying hidden colours and when the riverbed is dry it still looks fantastic. Even a non-wet area looks more interesting when a dry river bed is introduced.
The concept for featuring dry riverbeds in our designs came about while camping one day in a hot area in a dry riverbed. It was much cooler in the riverbed and after three days it grew on me, how beautiful it looked compared to the barren landscape outside the river. Growing up near the Emerald Lake in Victoria where there are many creeks and rivers, dry riverbeds now form a major part of our landscaping. Most importantly, dry riverbeds are practical in solving the problems of wet areas and adding life and creating a stand out feature to the area. Better still every dry riverbed is a unique garden feature that will last the test of time.
