I have been emulating my local beaver friends . I cut some large and small trees, lay them across the flow, and add rocks , gravel, mud, sand, more wood, and clay, here and there. I have built about 5 dams in a creek that is a raging flood each spring and the water seeps a little but is slowly plugging itself with my help.

A couple of pictures of my dams can be seen in my project thread.

When I lived just south of Yellowstone park, in the late 1970s it snowed on the forth of July ! But normally it is sometime in late October.

hey elle, I did something like that at one of our homes over in western Colorado. Except we had gutters and downspouts . It was a new house so as part of the new landscaping I dug a dry creek bed out from the downspout, curving and over small waterfalls into small ponds and then out to the sidewalk spillway. I added gravel to the streambed and larger rocks along each shoreline. Every time it rained we had our own little stream among the woodchips and flowers. So if you can get the water flowing before it soaks in I think you might have a cool feature in your yard.

Wow the color of those plums is amazing ! I've never seen anything like that.

Do you ever have branch breakage? Do you support the limbs? Are they grafted or grown from seeds?
Good one Tyler !
