Ripple Effects

A babbling brook

[Double falls and a very shallow stream.]

Found this looking for examples of shallow streams that I consider a babbling brook type of stream.

A couple of upflow filters, a stream that is about 4.0′ wide, and only a inch or so deep. Lots of babbling, and lots of eddy’s for the birds to drop into.

How it’s done:

The only way to get that rippling effect is to layer in a lot of small very flat stones, foaming them down tight to force the water over the top . . . not underneath. Or the lazy mans way of stream building-filling with small rock/gravel . . . sign or a real amateur.
