While rain may not be a frequent visitor in Phoenix, those occasional stormy days can wreak havoc on unprepared landscapes. The deluge of heavy rainwater can flood softscapes and landscape beds, leading to overwatering and soil erosion.
Tackling Mother Nature might seem daunting, but a well-designed drainage solution can effectively mitigate the impact of excess water, ensuring your outdoor spaces remain unscathed.
Dry creek beds are a powerful weapon in the battle against water damage. These unassuming shallow trenches play a crucial role in redirecting heavy water flows away from your property, safeguarding both your landscape and plant life.

Beyond their primary function of helping with drainage, dry creek beds bring an added bonus—they enhance the aesthetic appeal of outdoor spaces.
At Valleywide Dig and Haul, we take dry creek beds to the next level by lining them with sophisticated river rocks. This not only protects your property but also elevates its natural beauty.
When these beds fill with floodwater, they transform into captivating water features, resembling a small stream flowing through your yard. The dual purpose of functionality and visual allure sets dry creek beds apart.

The subsequent steps include:
Digging the Trench: Our team digs a trench approximately 8 to 10 inches deep, varying the depth randomly to maintain a natural appearance.
Landscape Fabric Layer: We place a layer of landscape fabric inside the trench to thwart weed growth beneath and around the dry creek bed.
Gravel Application: A dense layer of gravel is added to hold down the landscape fabric and occupy most of the dry creek bed.
River Rock Finishing Touch: To enhance drainage and visual appeal, we cover the creek bed with an assortment of river rocks in different sizes and shapes, maintaining a natural aesthetic.
Dry creek beds aren’t limited to specific outdoor areas; they are valuable additions wherever inclement weather poses a threat. While commonly found in landscaping areas, they prove equally beneficial in residential yards, preserving grass and soil integrity.
Business owners, too, can safeguard their commercial spaces by installing dry creek beds. A neat and professional appearance is crucial for businesses, and these beds ensure that flooded areas and decaying plants don’t tarnish that image.
