Dry stream bed

Along the path to the greenhouse is a sloped area that is prone to erosion during the rainy season. A dry stream bed seemed like it might be a solution.

So I dug a shelfed trench and lined it with filter fabric. The deeper section of the trench I filled with fist sized chunks of granite culled from various digs on the property.

Then I folded over the fabric and filled the remaining, wider area of the trench...

...with smaller river rock and a couple of stepping stones.

That way I can still roll a cart over the trench without disrupting the river rock too much.

Weather man says we might get to test this out this weekend.
