OMG how did i miss this one.
the hardscape is truly stunning, me and my mind though it ruins it. all i can see is a herd of elephants trumpeting on the left and jaguars on the right. But that is my minds eye.

All those plants are going to be amazing once planted, have fun tying the Java moss, its really a fun time consuming activity :p

The ball is now rolling everybody.

i've acquired a huge amount of Java moss to add to what's already coming.

took a quick snap of it close up, whilst trying to tie 100 stones.

Nice pic......looks like Taxiphylum barberie though. That moss I think has been re-classified some time back. Java moss though, is definitely Taxiphylum.

Nice pic.

Great hardscaping Mark (as usual :lol: ). Hope you've got all the moss stones done in readiness for Plantday-Monday ! I look forward to the next pics.
