Oh yea, on the timing:
I would set up the hardscape and plant the tank.
Then do the fishless cycle. If you are using plants that are sensitive to ammonia you might cycle it a bit differently. Add no more ammonia than it takes to reach 1 ppm, but add that much twice a day. That will still grow lots of bacteria, but the ammonia peak will not be so high as to burn the plants.
