Finally got it done, got very hot and humid and naturally monsoons after a relatively dry summer but it is what it is, which is 27 yards of 411 limestone , 18 yards of pea gravel , 4 yards of river rock , about 3 tons of various flat rock , and a couple hundred feet of soil stabilization fabric and the "garden" is completed.
Added a fire pit/stand , chairs , a fountain and a beautiful sounding
"Corinthian Bells" wind chime and my hope is all who visit find "serenity now".
As long as my wife does I'm happy, after all I built it for her.

Had enough gas in the tank to seal the patio, fall is our favorite time of the year and we enjoy entertaining our friends with cookouts , now we have another place to hang.

Very nice, looks professional, and plenty of area there for entertainment.  Need my address?  Always wanted an Octagon Gazebo with fire pit in center, roof over it, chimney up thru center, seats around it.
