Oops.

If you move the quartz, where will you move it? It would be neat as a centerpiece with a pond around it. You could make yourself a nice little English garden there. Regardless, I'm jealous of your found treasures.

We (meaning just me) will be redoing our front yard landscaping in the next few weeks. I would look into local greenhouses about landscaping suggestions. Many have very good services for cheap. I ended up paying for an hour long consultation with a landscape designer. For 50 dollars we discussed of basically what my wife and I like plant wise , how much time we wanted on upkeep, etc.... Then we recieved a basic drawing on graph paper of the layout and plantings. It isn't to scale but very close. The designer stepped off the house, drive, sidewalk, etc... and then transferred to graph paper. She intentionally left a few plants to use as planting guides. We were told use these as the starting point and look at the next plant and look up maximum growth and use this for spacing of the rest of shrubs, ornamental trees, and grasses. Each plant was labeled and she even gave suggestions for replacements if we didn't like them or couldn't find them locally. Finally she quickly answered any questions we had, left a number to contact her and took the time to explain some pruning techniques for a few of our current bushes. One of the best bang for your buck experiences I have had in a long time.
