Riverbeds for Runoff

Spring rains don’t have to lead to slides. Dry riverbeds redirect water runoff and add beauty to your landscape.

Houzz.  Spring 2012.  By Cassy Aoyagi:  With spring here, you may be wondering how to manage runoff from snow or rain hitting saturated soils. Unexpected or mismanaged water is not just inconvenient; in some areas it is truly dangerous. In my native Los Angeles, too much water can lead to slope destabilization, slides and ocean pollution as runoff overwhelms storm systems. These are ugly problems, but at least one of the potential solutions is incredibly beautiful!
