We have recently purchased our first home and I am eager to start planning our landscaping for the front and back yards. We have a ravine to the side of our property and when it rains, the water runs in a big circle around the house and eventually down into the ravine. The previous owners had laid gravel down along the "stream bed" that is created when it rains... most of the gravel is now gone. What can I do to landscape that will not interfere with the flow of water, but will look nice and not like I threw a bunch of gravel down willy nilly. I was concerned that if I created a bordered gravel path that it might hinder the water flow? Thanks.
