Gravel around the foundation for drainage, plant shrubs along to help soak up water. Like the idea of the large rock to prevent erosion from the water spicket. Maybe a few cool pots or barrels with plants too? I like :)
Sunset in Montmartre, Paris - Loved it here!
Greece going here before I die for sure!
