Looks good Nigel. I'm guessing you're going to cap the substrate with sand to enhance depth and perspective ;)

Very impressive already m8 :thumbup: how long did it take picking the right size rocks and breaking them up to get such a great looking hardscape? they look so tightly packed and natural :clap:

Great sense of depth on the path with the slight curve really gives the illusion of distance, also aided by the great choice of rock sizes :thumbup:

Where are you gonna fill the eleocharis? Into the sand in the front?

What is the goal of the cigaret filter?

Do you have to use the liquid type superglue or can you use gel? How strong is the bond when cured?

Friend told me the liquid type is probably better than gel. I don’t know Why exactly Maybe the liquid type goes easier into the cig filter. It gets really hard when its cured. I can no longer move the stones.

Filipe Oliveira uses the liquid super Glue and a mix of AS crumbled to glue DW to rocks, worked well in his live demo I went to see all DW stayed down as he had it flooded in a few hours later

I used this method in my last 80 cm rescape for stones and wood. Works good but not as firm as the cig filter method.
