    Hi Shirley, what Rocks are you referring to?

    Hello Shirley,

    Have you tried to investigate? As it is a bit difficult for me to know where the Rocks are, How big they are, and the purpose they were put there for without at least a picture or more information!

      I apologize for not having picture. River rocks are used as dry creek as rainwater comes out of downspout. Creek seems to be about 2 ft wide by 6-8 ft long. I need a dry creek built to capture or prevent my front yard from getting too wet.

    Havre you thought of installing a large or a few smaller Rainwater tanks or Butts linked together to catch the water We have just installed a further (5) around our home, .and intend to add more due to Global warming making it impossible to use mains water through a hose pipe due to costs.

    We also have a dry creek with wildlife pond at the end of it and a few plants like Water Rush and Iris to keep the water sweet.

    Sorry, now to address your question: Probably shingle 4" then the river rock.

    Maybe if you really get a great deal of water, you could build a Lake and tether a small Rowboat near bye - just in case...........Good luck!
