    The dry streambed of river rocks that seems to flow from one lawn-pond to the other in the upper, contemplative area of this small suburban backyard east of Seattle.

      Side yard idea. The dry streambed of river rocks that seems to flow from one lawn-pond to the other in the upper, contemplative area of this small suburban backyard east of Seattle.

      This long but shallow backyard incorporates a dining patio, a small but meticulous lawn, a dry streambed, and plantings for year-round interest in a small backyard space just 35 x 135 feet. Zen-like design incorporates the Japanese maples and dry river bed.

      The dry streambed of river rocks that seems to flow from one lawn-pond to the other in the upper (said one Pinner). This might be perfect for my shady-somewhat swampy side yard!

      Side yard? This long but shallow backyard in a suburb east of Seattle incorporates a dining patio, a small but meticulous lawn, a dry streambed, and plantings for year-round interest in a small backyard space just 35 feet deep x 135 feet long, roughly one tenth of an acre.

      The dry streambed of river rock would be a great idea in Dorothy's side yard. It could look very rustic.

      This long but shallow backyard in a suburb east of Seattle incorporates a dining patio, a small but meticulous lawn, a dry streambed, and plantings for year-round interest in a small backyard space just 35 feet deep x 135 feet long, roughly one tenth of an acre. Following an addition to the home, the landscape designers used elevation changes to carve the space into distinct areas for entertaining and strolling, and to offer peaceful views from the new family room. Care was taken to match materials on the existing patio and foundation facade, and a Zen-like design incorporates the Japanese maples and dry streambed filled with river rock.

    Dry Creek After Rain. Beautiful dry creek.

    Beautiful Japanese forest grass [Hakonechloa), great shade groundcover - Cold hardiness zones 4-9. Partial sun. Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.

    Beautiful garden path. - Style Estate -

    Inexpensive path. Apparently if you sprinkle baking soda on the dirt twice a year, nothing will grow there.

    Ooh. Pretty purple. I think a little too bold of a color for the color scheme but really pretty

    A simple clean landscape with only two different plants! Kupukupu fern and Emerald green ti combined with stepping stones and river rock make this a low maintainance landscape.
