Many apologies.......they came up after I had posted that......
I would far prefer to see you using gravel in this situation. Gravel can be attractive and gives you options to change the planting in the future.......I'm afraid concrete in the garden is rarely a thing of beauty and far too permanent and sterile in my opinion. But that's just my own feeling about it.
Gravel !

I personally wouldn't use concrete.

You could use gravel, chippings, leaf mould, bark chips, plum coloured slate chips, etc, etc.

Put some black plastic down and cover with chippings. Make some holes in the plastic and plant some varigated coloured grasses in.

What did you decide on doing and do you have any pictures? I would've suggested going with the chippings Smile
