lol ... the dreaded sinking feeling dum dum dummmm..

ya man only 5 bags.... its because I put a crap load of river rock in the back to take up space.. river rock that I bought 80 bucks a yard vs 45 bucks a bag is much cheaper lol. It also creates more stability in the back . That was actually just 4 bags, I have 1 more bag that I will top up before planting and adding the sand

Hey pos, I see what you are saying. The scape is a 1/3 to 2/3 slit, and to maintain all of the soil on the right, I had to add a crap load of rocks to sustain the slope. Also remember, this is just the hardscape, some of the plants will grow on top of the rocks and soften it up. A lot of the smaller shorter rocks will not even be visible once the plants grow in. If it is still busy after month 2 of growth, then I will adjust as needed. I do appreciate the input, keep them coming =)

lol. No problem. I'm sure you're right and it'll look awesome. Looking forward to the finished/mature affect--especially b/c I'll be looking for a 75g rimless in the next month or two as well
