DRY CREEK BEDS
Independence Landscape is a full-service lawn and landscape company serving Northern Virginia. Our clients get access to our team of experts for customized landscape, hardscape and drainage correction projects, including dry creek beds. A properly installed dry creek bed offers the best of both worlds: a long-term solution that enhances your yard’s appearance. Ask your Account Manager if a dry creek bed could resolve your drainage issues.
A dry creek bed helps channel water to flow through or around an area, but it’s not the answer for every yard. Here is how our process works:
At Independence Landscape, we show up on time and follow through on our commitments. You can expect your Account Manager to communicate clearly and responsively, and to be available when needed for advice. Our crews are dependable, friendly and attentive to detail. We are here for the long haul, and pledge to get the job done right.
We can’t wait for a heavy rain and not see our yard washing away! Besides functional, the river bed looks great as do the stepping stones!

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes—many of our drainage projects involve multiple components, and it depends on your property’s needs. Your dry creek bed may be integrated with downspout extensions, French drains, channel drains, drain boxes or pop-up emitters. Some grading is usually necessary as well, and many clients choose to add landscaping and/or mulching near the dry creek bed to enhance the look and reduce erosion.
If you speak to five different contractors, you are likely to get five different opinions that vary by each company’s specialty. At Independence, our focus is to mitigate water before it gets to your house. Whenever possible, we prefer to use gravity rather than mechanical options like a sump pump because it’s more dependable long term. Whether it’s a complex drainage correction or lawn maintenance, our clients know they can depend on us to get the job done right.
We do not offer one-time projects because our existing clients are our top priority—our business is built on these long-term relationships. If you are willing to consider us for a maintenance service, such as weekly mowing or our Lawn Care Program, we are happy to meet with you to evaluate your drainage issues and find a customized solution.
