I love water in the garden, this may be the perfect way to include it without having to have a huge pond ( which I would do, if I could, but bedrock prevents me).

Nice water feature with stones. Reminds us of the Jack Johnson lyric: "Well, how could we have known? I tell 'em it's not so hard to tell. If you keep adding stones And soon the water will Be lost in the well, lost in the well." On a practical note, this thing will have to be raked REGULARLY.
Raised beds, collecting rainwater as well. - perhaps tiered beds can have a French drain at the end that catches excess water run off from the rain. It would be a larger area to collect rain water and would only be extra If the other plants were all watered.
This would be fabulous for my "woodland garden" which at present consists of a gulch that the goat has to clear of nettles and blackberries every spring. He would ADORE to clear it of hostas as well. Also hydrangeas and pretty much anything else pretty I wanted to plant there. He is both diligent and thorough.
