Re: Back to my garden....

Oh my.
You might do a lot to make it appear curvy by piling more rocks on this side
or that, extending the rock out past the plastic etc. So you may have water
traveling in a more or less straight path, but the rock pattern gives the
illusion of a winding creek. Adding misters or little bubblers at strategic
points could enhance the illusion. Now understand, this is just my problem
solving brain spouting ideas. Have seen things like this, but haven't done
any myself.
