I'm thinking of digging in a pond into a corner of our garden and surrounding it in gravel, pepples, rocks etc. I have an Acer I'd like to plant there and maybe put in some alpine plants to compliment the pebbles and shingle. Ideally I'd like to cover the ground with weed control fabric before I lay the stones but how do I plant? Do I just cut out Xs in the fabric, plant and then lay the gravel? Will I still be able to water? Can anyone help? I've never done this before.
