Love this look. We're working on putting in a real stream, but I think this would be the next best thing. (Without the wasps, water to circulate, etc). Do love the sound of running water though. Not sure where I got this. Saved the page a while ago (just the picture link).
used several sizes of rock spaced unevenly, to give the creek bed a natural look. Note, too, how rounded rock (which looks like it has been tumbled by water) lines the meandering course. Along the banks grow dwarf agaves, aloes and the tough-as-nails groundcover, dymondia.
