I like the boulder idea. I don't know where you are, but flowers will need upkeep to not look raggedy or dead after a time and boulders will always look like the day you installed them. I'm a huge flower lover and keeper of numerous large flower pots, btw

I like the boulder idea; very attractive and will have desired effect. When struck, the driver will think, what the xxxx, did I hit? (hopefully with some degree of anxiety).
