A few months ago, when Ollie and I were returning from visiting his Grandchildren and his eldest daughter, we drove past a beautiful home with this gorgeous landscaping.
We both loved it!
We've been planning on doing some landscaping at his home. We have to battle lots of rocks and clay every time we work in the yard and it gets to be a pain.
Erosion is a really big problem for us, too. Ollie's house is in the middle of a big hill.
My idea is to do something similar to the photo, but a larger scale. At the top would be a "natural looking" waterfall, leading into the "fake" creek bed. At the base, would be a small "pool" with a seating area.
I hope you like it!
