put rocks around the center mound! like you've done with the mounds on the edges! once that is done, it'll look great. Right now, it is hard to see a separation between the low ground and the high ground. it just looks awkward!

Any tips on planting the baby tears and hairgrass also stem plants with no roots

i know most are planted without water i know why because its alot easier and less mess but should the gravel be covered at all or just damp problem im having is mainly just with baby tears but they will not stay planted they float instantly and have little to no root system i have heard try tweezers but all i have are the little ones my girl uses for her eye brows..i guess ill try em
