I like the hardscape but it definitely needs added aquatic plants.
— Cory Nudelman
Overall this scape is quite effective and unique. The use of various materials was well thought out and really helps create a lot of interesting textures.

I'm sorry I understand your intent but this just doesn't work for me. The water area just ends up looking dirty.
