    does anyone have any pics of landscaping that they did were there is all mulch but with couple different little spots of stone or gravel instead of bark. ive seen it done an looks pretty cool. but lot of people i talk to about it say they have never seen it so been trying to get pics so that i can show them.

    I don't have any pics, but I know what your talking about. Small sections of different shape intermingled in mulch beds.

    I still haven't found the right customer to try that with. You can get pretty creative with it.

    Give me about 6 months and I'll have my rock garden done. I'm planning on using metal edging and about 3-6 different colors. I don't think I'm going to plant any flowers in it, so I'll probably skip the mulch.

    Thanks, it wasn't too bad. I didn't like how the metal edging bows a little when you drive the stakes in, I'm all about strait lines. But, the homeowner loved it and it was exactly what he was looking for.

    That looks awesome. I wished I lived in FL sometimes only because I like tropical plants. There is some things we can grow around here with a similar look but it doesn't neccisarily fit with the enviroment.
