Many garden owners could benefit from adding a low maintenance dry stream to their property. Ponds and stream-like constructions do require maintenance, but with a dry stream, you can create an instant feature, that only needs to be kept free of leaves etc.
In this example above (Tropical Landscaping for Large Hua Hin Garden) the whole side of this large garden was nothing more than a muddy ditch, with a few haphazardly planted beds. The idea was to create a much more attractive feature, to cover the side and add added interest. A dry stream is perfect for this type of landscaping problem.
A multicoloured pebble base (on top of imported geo textile anti weed fabric) is decorated with large natural stone boulders, and accompanied with side planting, which breaks up the sides and adds colour and layered foliage.
The side of the garden is now a beautiful feature. Settled amongst the existing mature trees, and new planting on the lawn side, this dry stream has become a major part of the garden, and replaced the eyesore which was detrimental to the landscape.
And at the top of the steam, the Thai Garden Design team build this 1.50m tall waterfall feature, which the team adapted to hold a small pond, with pump and switch so the top of the 'dry stream' creates the calming water sound.
