    You have done what many just cannot do. Use a large piece of DW very successful.

    Thanks Keith...I'm getting some feedback that the wood is too big and dominating.
    I disagree, the wood gives the scape height and provides a 3D surface for planting.

    Once the scape is planted it won't be anywhere near as prominent.
    Although, I'm determined it won't be lost under a mass of moss :)

    The one very basic point in all design work is being able to visualize the finished work. This just does not happen to every one its something that just cannot be taught and learnt. We are lucky we can do it.

    I expected a few comments when I posted my reply too, as I often mention a piece of DW or rock/s just do not work simply because of its size

    I think Tim will say very soon if he has not already started.
