This aquascape is done distinctively in the Brazilian style with a mix of colored stem plants ridges over interlacing hardscape. This aquascape achieves a great sense of balance and flow. The wood work is expressive and draws the viewer into the distance. The planted areas are finely balanced against the hardscape, shadowed areas vs highlights, details vs open space. The best layout I've seen in recent years that incorporates heavy wood work into a Brazilian style layout.
