Happy to hear you where able to find gravel for your design.
Hopefully the changes you made will save your maple. Good Luck and keep us updated.

Update!  I managed to find some white chips that were the smallest and lightest i town, for $20 a ton.  Spent the last 2 days shoveling and arranging.  Feeling alot more finished!  I also found that when I pulled up some of the black rock the water under it had been pooling, so I'm guessing the fabric barrier is water proof.  So I tore some holes in it around my Japanese maple so hopefully she'll make a comeback now!  I also made a small pagoda out of air dry clay and a cheap solar light from the dollar store.  I think I need to paint it though, debating between grey or black.

Thanks everyone!  I'm looking around town to see if I can find some white pea gravel sized stone to use.
