Dry riverbed provided wonderful drainage in the storm


For those of you who have followed this blog since we constructed our dry riverbed in the front garden, I thought you might like to see how well it coped with the downpour we had yesterday.  We had 14mm in five minutes, that is a considerable amount of rain.  The riverbed coped beautifully.

A little bit has pooled at the side but apart from that all worked well.

I have already done a post when we had some rain previously and the riverbed worked but this was a really heavy downpour.
