Planning a 27 gallon cube layout

tank, 20LX18WX20H, 27 gallon
4X18 T5HO 20" fixture
Flourish, Flourish Excel, Flourish Iron

Basically I am trying to make an aquascape of my backyard.
My backyard is completely dead right now. Too lazy to find a picture of it during spring/summer time.

The drawing is a 2D 20x18.
The left side is gonna be on a raised level separated by miniature bricks
replace gazebo/patio with tree made out of wood and HC
field: Glosso
sides: Staurgyne Repens, crypt, rotala indica bonsai, ludwigia red, water sprite
Pebbles to keep glosso and other plants separated.
Do i need to coat the bricks with paint? they are concrete or clay (not sure)
Any other plants recommended?
Any general recommendations?

I think this is very interesting and creative! If you start a journal on this tank I'll be following a long!
