Dry Stream Bed.  Dig it deeper and fill the whole thing in with rocks and large gravel and you will have a French drain, which will help with run-off and such.  Going to do something like this on the side yard to keep it from being washed away in monsoons.

Dry River Bed Landscape Edging.  Dark rock gives the illusion of water.  Plant grasses and ferns along edge of landscaping.  Add dark river rocks to give the illusion of water and follow with larger rocks like you would find along a river bed.  Great idea!!  Love the natural look of this edging. May be a pretty solution for my drainage problems
