Any ideas on how to fill this small blank space?
We recently leveled and seeded our entire yard, and laid a flagstone patio. We left one small spot (to the left of the steps, approx. 6'x5') blank because it would be a nuisance to mow/edge. We had grand plans to make a little 'scene' there with a hypertufa bird bath, river rock, and rock garden plants and some grasses all around it. Sounded great. The hypertufa we made was okay but with the retaining wall the last thing we need there is more gray concrete.
Now we are at a loss how to fill this spot. I'd LOVE to have a basalt bird bath rock, but we have a steep driveway and there is no way we could get one of those heavy rocks into the back yard.
Ideas? Our neighbors hedge (in the pic) is on the north side of our house. While it's a sunny spot, we are in western Oregon so we only get hot sun a few months out of the year.
We want it to be a DIY project....we're pretty capable and willing to try most things.
Thanks for any input you may have! :)
