    ok thanks for the feedback, i like number one too as it was the 1st one i made. but when you look for the side it is very think and has little depth but i can try to change it.
    i think no.5&6 are my 2nd favorites.

    again we fall into the trap of wondering which one is "right" and which one is "wrong" ! ...they all work!

    you need to to decide how to plant then question whether the hard scape works for those plants and the layout shape you have in mind.

    surf the net for a few amano scapes and look at what he does....

    it's early days but know one mentioned 3. you obviously saw it's potential! ;)

    what was your plan for 3?.....this maybe?

    you begin to see, that many layouts are often right, it's just what we do with them.

    it's also good to see some great, cheap hardscape in the country.

    everything is WAY over priced!...

    Personally I'd do something similar to the first one, it just looks nicer to my eyes :)

    i have agree with mark. the other day i was woundering which layout to choose. i have decided on the one didnt like as much but will work with the plants better. if you look at amanos step by steps he doesnt really look like hes put much thought into his wood layouts but when you see them planted they are much different.
