hi folks, me again (nooooooooo....i hear you cry) well the time has come to start my new journal. i don't have a name yet hence the ??????????? the first step is complete, to buy hard scape materials. ive purchased roughly 80 kg of the blue stone from TGM (thansk guys) its alot, the biggest piece alone weighs 33kg! of course im not going to use all of it but i didnt want to be short when it came to the stone arranging. also i can bash the big stones up a bit to get what i really want. the cup's for scale what im hoping to create is a cliff face of some sort.im still scratching my head about how im to gain the height that im looking for without using doses of AS. i know in Asia they use polystyrene to bulk out. also i have the option of using my existing stones to bulk out. allot to think about there. im not using any wood because i feel i need to improve my rock arrangement skills. next scape will be wood. maybe after the henge is over (which maybe soon) planting wise, i want to use similar layout like what's in the henge. HC, rotala sp green ( to Dave Spencer) and maybe the red variety. mosses. nothing new or innovating because im not good enough yet to innovate. im going to be using the existing substrate and 2 extra bags of AS (we'll see how the amounts pan out) with a ADA bright sand front with graded pebbles and stones. that's basicly it for now, i'll update soon.
