Does anyone have a water garden?

By this I do not mean a fountain or a little pond, I mean an attractive system by which runoff water is handled in the yard by means of landscaping, stones, etc.  We are interested in making one, and yes I know we missed the workshops that happened earlier this year!  Any help is appreciated.

Right outside Ridley Park's limits, behind Chill-Out Ice Cream in Leedom Estates, a national animal-lovers crisis is unfolding over the whereabouts of a micro-miniature, Vietnamese potbelly pig called Steve.

Ridley Township Police have refused to reveal their hideout for the 10 week old pig they found in an alley.

So, has anybody been in and checked the place out yet?  I think it's called the Black Salt Cafe?  I plan to stop by after work today.  Hopefully they'll be interested in hosting a BookCrossing bookshelf.
