Hey! I'm fairly new to this hobby, but I figured I'd put in my two cents. I really love the layout! I don't know if I'd change much to be honest. The open look is really nice and the bunches of plants around the rock work really well.

If you wanted you could try a tall spindly type plant with the others to give it more height. Or do a carpet plant. I like the colour theme, but adding something red might be interesting too.

It's beautiful as it is, though, imo.

The hardscape is nice
For arrangement then you couldn't find a better place to plant that sword.

Grow propagate and fill her in, or just buy more plants and fill up her up.

maybe star grass in the back to middle gap behind in between the rocks
and then let the foreground mars ilea or whatever it is to fill in the rest of it, nice simple yet full

and moss glued onto the wood would add nice effect
