Streams of stone

Create the illusion of flowing water in your garden

Black pebble stream

Mexican black pebbles of varying shapes and sizes mimic currents and eddies.

Maggie MacLaren

Meandering streams are as beautiful as they are cooling on a hot summer's day. They rush through narrow channels, swirl around rocky outcrops, and fan out to form placid pools.

To create this illusion in your own garden, set river rocks of varying sizes end to end. Then watch the flow take shape, complete with bubbles and eddies.
