Sorry. I really should proofread before posting.

I am not exactly sure what I typed, but I think it was "I want to plant other things there."

Instead of a critter friendly brush pile I'll have myself some down time (What's that ?) burning debri and..... While shoveling gravel and rocks back into place I noticed some pretty awesome little caves in the new riprap. THOSE I'm leaving for the critters and...intend upon letting some brush grow up in front of them for critter security.
You, of all people, NEED a fire pit. Forced downtime, cuz you are always so busy. I love to chill by the fire. We don't do it often, but it's priceless when we do. Our firepit is actually contraband in the city, but we are well concealed in our back yard and the neighbors have not (yet) turned us in.

The awesome caves are going to attract lots of critters. I hope your water issues are soon resolved. It's been an ongoing problem in West MI as well. Lake MI seems so calm and kind....but she can do some real damage when she's riled.
