Thanks. Good points to consider. Have never seen beaver around here, and the water is typically only 3 feet deep or less. The water has reached the back of our porch once I'm told so it can happen. Is one reason why I'm building up stone sections to avoid soil erosion and have hugel beds, and trying to make best use of the natural contour of the property. Dead peach and pecan trees and compost have been going in the hugel bed. There are some Chinaberry trees that I'd like to get rid of, course I won't be putting them there. Lots to do.

Learn about natural river edge, scour pools, back eddies, wood recruitment etc. Lots of native shrubs take from stakes. Cottonwood buds make nice ointment. Willow good for baskets. Anticipate high water. Consider beaver.
