Okay, I thought I was a weekend landscape widow before? Over dinner this evening, Husband shared with me his vision of a "water feature" he wants to build in our newly transformed backyard. He wants to take up prime, sunny plant real estate with a pond that will be fed by a small water fall operated by a pump. Stormwater will in some way be routed to the pond, with overflow being siphoned off to a dry creek bed which will be filled with river rocks, but which will also have a large pipe underneath to funnel water to another pipe leading to the street.
Holy no-weekends-off-from-childcare for the forseeable future, Batman!
