It looks really nice. Maybe attach some moss along the twigs?

Along another thought you can rotate the two last pics with and art proggy on windows computer systems so they are easier to view here.

Thanks for uploading.

Looks great ! Just a little tip, if you trim an inch off the DHG it will spread quicker.

IMO the three 'islands' has a busy look to it. I think combining the far left and center islands together would look more natural and simpler.

+1 on not loving the rock work. Too reminiscent of cheaply done flower beds you see in rural areas; no real planning, they just throw some topsoil down and border it with whatever craggy rocks they've dug up out of the pasture.

Might be less obtrusive once you get good plant growth, but it'd be nice to see some actual design work with 'em rather than just having them circle your bigger plants.
