Also, what type of wood is that? regular wood will decay a lot faster than DW.
Thanks for the feedback.

I have wet the rocks. The ones in there are charcoal black. They are actually the stuff they use on roads. The lighter colour ones I have tested too, they don't change under water. I don't like mixing rocks in a scape like this because it tends to make the design less attractive. If I was doing a rock riverbed I would. but then they would mainly be the same shape. I think one differing factor is enough.

The wood is the root off a willow (probably) It is light but will last long enough. What do you mean by driftwood? I mean what makes it driftwood and not regular wood?
