February and March of 2023 provided us with a problem we hadn't had for five or more years—what to do with all the rainwater. With climate change making weather patterns more erratic, it's important to find sustainable solutions for excess water. One Redditor's ordinary lawn became a “dry creek bed” after they received a California lawn rebate for 'xeriscaping.' This not only helped with drainage but also added a beautiful focal point to their landscape.

If you're looking to improve drainage in your soil for your garden plants, incorporating a dry creek bed can be a great solution. By redirecting excess water away from your plants, you can prevent waterlogging and root rot. Stones and rocks can add character to a landscaping project, and the cost of landscaping rocks will typically depend on the material, size, and quantity you choose.

Creating a low-water garden is not only eco-friendly but can also save you money on your water bill. Rain gardens are designed to capture and utilize rainwater efficiently, ensuring that every drop is put to good use. By incorporating a dry creek bed into your design, you can further enhance the beauty and functionality of your garden.

With the North State finally receiving some much-needed rain, it's crucial to make the most of this precious resource. By implementing sustainable landscaping practices like xeriscaping and rain gardens, you can reduce your water usage and create a more resilient landscape. It appears the heavens closed up the watering hole without announcing “last call” to all the thirsty California patrons, so it's up to us to make the most of every drop.

While rocks can be a great addition to your landscape, it's important to consider the climate and terrain of your area. In Texas, for example, gravel may not be the best choice due to excessive heat and a lack of rainfall. Understanding the unique challenges of your region can help you make informed decisions when planning your landscaping project.
