All the discussion about rocks on GS lately gave me an idea. I really wanted a landing at the bottom of the concrete stairs by the retaining wall, but I needed it to be free, using materials I already had on hand.
I have piles of rocks, some pretty flat. So, I picked through the rocks and played jigsaw puzzle.
Then I traced around each rock one at a time with my spade, and dug out a hole for each rock. We have the type of soil where you can do that and it just works as long as you don't need something perfectly level (like a patio).
The eventual goal is to have ground cover between the rocks. I started with some of my $.50 perennials (mazus). Not sure this will be what I really want here, a sedum would be much easier.
