    i've seen these..... just never installed one..... helpful hints...... how to make it look natural?.....sizes of river rock?...... mortar in some?.......drainage?...... how to hide the fabric? .....logs, plants? how deep should it be excavated?......

    the creek/river will start at one side of the house as a small dry pond..... then it twist towards the front under a bridge, that acts as the main entrance to the house,......along the front of the house, between the house and a 2' tall wall,....flowing along till it ends in a trickle near an outdoor patio.....hints to make this project go smoother are greatly appreciated

    I excavate and fill will small rock, 1/4 in and throw in some larger 2.5in. I usually use a liner for the bottom so it can flow water if needed. Pump at top and basin dug in near the bottom.
