this is my idea of great landscaping. Sculptural shapes of the plants and rocks, gravel. No need to water, prune or clean up leaves/debris. Keep the weed out and run the hose over it once in a while. - My Garden
I had a bare spot I black mulch in front of my house and didn't know what to do with it. I was to keep the landscaping low considering there are plant behind this. So I went with a dry riverbed look! It does a great job filling out the spot.
