Dry Riverbed in Clarkston Michigan

This dry riverbed is both functional and attractive to look at. In the Spring the property receives its Spring rains along with melting snow and the family pond’s water level, rises. It overflows into this engineered river. The water travels naturally to a larger lake down stream. During the hot Summer months, the stream tends to dry up. The dry river bed that we created has boulders along the sides to support the bank and prevent erosion. Additionally we put fabric all along the bottom to reduce weeds and to support river gravel. The variety of stone enhances the appearance and makes the stream bed cleaner and neat. This dry riverbed is 425 feet long.
