Question of the week!
Q: The dry river beds that was installed to help with water erosion is full of dirt and the water is going everywhere.
What can I do?
Q: This question is one we have seen a lot more with the recent rains. Dry river beds do a great job at diverting rainwater and preserving the landscape.
They do, however, have a tendency to fill with debris since they are the lowest point in the landscape. The debris (mainly dirt) can cause the dry river bed to overflow and allow the water to go wherever the rain takes it.
The best thing to do is to pull out the river rock, clean out all debris, and replace the river rock and the dry river bed will work as good as new!
