Scaping help


So I went on vacation and my light broke for some unknown reason. About a quarter of my plants melted from it so I figured it is a great time to rescape and turn it into a dirted tank. I want to figure out how I am going to set it up first so I don't make a mess moving things around.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to any driftwood or large rocks and I really don't want to buy them.

I cleaned out most of the melted plants but I am hoping that some of them will be able to come back. The plants floating in to top left corner will be replanted but I don't want to replant them twice.

You can't really see it in the picture but I am carpeting DHG and microsword(I am seeing which one grows better)

Please be honest

well I think those are kind of the keys to a scape, well hardscape

there has gotta be something you can find, maybe find and treat some lake driftwood?

I was thinking of going dutch so I wouldn't need a hardscape.

Let me rephrase that, I don't have access to *larger* pieces of wood. All I can get are twigs. I live in the plains of CO and there are not many trees. I am willing to treat the wood if I had it though.
