Front yard/drainage question--dry creek/rain garden
I have a new to me home, and I've been tackling a few front yard landscaping projects. I want to install a dry stream bed instead of a long gross downspout extension like the one present now. My question is, the dry stream bed in theory will come to the end of the front planting bed....this is not natural, of course, (who am I going to fool, anyway??)so my next inclination was to put a rain garden at the end of the stream.
I appreciate any ideas.
