Drain Rocks and Drainage Ditch Revamp

We just revamped our drainage ditch. This is the area between our house and the street.  In the winter, rainwater runs down it to the creek, and in the summer, it grows weeds.

But not any more.

The first step was to weed whack the weeds down to nubs.
Then we had a dump truck deliver 11 yards of rock and enough weed cloth (yes, we had to have them come back with 3 more yards of rock).

With a handful of helpers, we spread the weed cloth and the rocks.

 It was a hot hot hot day and we worked hard.

Here is what it looks like now. It is a much wider space then I had originally thought, and the rocks frame the inside garden and make it look much nicer.
