Here's one we just did. A bit more of a dry creek representation, slightly retained to keep the mulch out.

It was made into a cistern to control run-off from the driveway.

Under the river rock is row after row after row of ADS 4" pipe side by side and stacked to act as a horizontal cistern.

The creek bed cistern handles overflow from the pond during rain.

I really like the one shown by Keith Howells.

The 1st one shown by Gopher (assuming it is not his work, but his Internet search) is a good example of what not to do- (IMO of course). Mixing field stone boulders and glacial river rocks is VERY unnatural and looks bad.

I think examples of what not to do are just as important as those of nice examples of what to do.
