What about this? Imagine at the back.centre it was light, like at the end of the tunnel.
I like it, but i thinkit looks better in real life than comes across in a photo.

Difficult to choose between them.
I think the steps on the first one would make nice planting areas, so I think that's the one I would go for.
But don't stop there, can we have some more designs please? It's nice looking at them, just wish I could play in your sand pit too!

I'm no expert but that's my favourite so far. Doesn't have as muh depth but it's more striking, which personally I prefer

This has some more drama to it, but I still think the first one pips it...they’re all great though!

I can’t make one, as I’ll end up finding an excuse for another tank and two tanks is time consuming enough. I’ll just live vicariously through you guys.

p.s. more... ;)

I'd worry in the first one you might not see much of the hardscape once planted. In this later one clearly you would :thumbup:

I like them as well. The last one the most I think.

To give you some critique I think the hardscape could benefit with a pathway from the opening midt front (maybe force it a bit more left) with a slope up to rocks just behind, and from there zig sack trough the rocks to the back. This might give a clear endpoint for you scape.

I think allso some more height at the back RH and LH corners would please my eyes. Mabe driftwood or some more rock.

Thanks for sharing your work

I like the second one, it is inline with the rule of thirds as the weight of the hardscape seems to have the bulk of it in the left 3rd.
