After we redid our front porch we had to redirect the rainwater from the rain gutters so we decided to do something fun and create a dry creek bed with a twist. So being the quirky folks we are we created a gnome garden dry creek bed.
At the front of the planter is a drain the was placed through the bottom of the bricks that we covered over with some metal screening and just a thick layer of rocks. By extending the dry creek bed rocks all the way up to the other rain gutter, we will be able to minimize the dirt getting into the drain.
Some gnomes, old and new and nasturtiums planted from seed, help set off the little area. I hope you like our little gnome garden dry creek bed.
