I like use of rocks gravel to slow water down as it moves through landscape on slight slope. Flat stone with depression in foreground a perfect spot for bees & butterflies to get water (without drowning in a deeper birdbath)
Small and simple backyard garden with individual beds, pots, and small garden trees. Good idea for back yard rather than one long garden bed?
