I have some ideas for you, but before I get into specifics I have asked for a clarification about the stream. Here's some preliminary work. Here's an H&G episode with a streambed; you might be able to get some ideas: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/gl_design_other/article/0,1785,HGTV_3566_1921963,00.html#moreprojects How about a Japanese garden? You can look at some pages of this book online at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0897214897/qid=1114568614/br=1-16/ref=br_lf_b_16//102-3301292-5780950?v=glance&s=books&n=5271 http://www.gardencomposer.com/ - Are you interested in trying some landscaping software? As far as vendors are concerned, your local garden center is the best source - they have plants which will thrive in your area, and if they don't sell rocks and boulders, they probably know of someone locally who does. These are the types of rocks you would want in the streambed: http://www.seasidemulch.com/streambed.asp http://www.artandlindaswildflowers.com/NewPgs/gardens/RainPgs/NBarring-05.html - this site has a few plants named, if they can be grown in your zone; this is northern Illinois This garden has a dry streambed which gets some rain runoff: http://www.artandlindaswildflowers.com/NewPgs/gardens/RainPgs/glenview.html -- also northern Illinois. This site has some pictures with some great ideas - click on the small picture to get a gallery, and click on each one to get a bigger picturehttp://www.aguafina.com/gallery.html
