Becky, I don't know much about indoor plants of any kind. Start a new thread and ask your question again. There are more knowlegable people than I around. And it will get noticed.

It is very exciting though. That is a HUGE space you are transforming.

That first is not a true before pic because that shrubbery went around that tree on the left all the way to that black pot on the right. I started cutting things back before I remembered my camera. Lot's of brush hauling today.

Now is the area going to be from the tree on the left to the tree on the right and all the way forward to the "concrete" area where the truck is?

OK, the plan right now is for it to start at the bare dirt right in the front of the 'after' pic; go left(ish) to where that black pot is. Then a 90* turn to the next black pot. That's my pond on the right. It's about 14 ft (turn) 12 ft.
I have a lot of rocks to make. [scaredy]

That is a lot of space and a lot of rocks. You already have one rock right? Any others waiting in the wings?

I would like to anchor the corners with at least four foot rocks. We'll see what I can manage.

Actually, If I need equipment,I have friends. I do lot's of favors like dog-sitting and watering plants, etc. I can ask for returns favors. It's cool. I love the barter system. It works so much better than cash.
