    Have a look at the strata of your rock (the lines). Look to "line" them up at a similar angle with the odd one out. It will give it a more natural feel. Picture how the rock in mountains flows/lies in certain directions. Maybe bring some of the smaller ones into the open space where you planted the carpet. :)

    add moss in between those rocks, attach to smaller pebbles, and let it break down the path from substrate to rocks.. it will look more natural.

    Okay cool...
    But if I "line" them up in at a similar angle wouldn't that create a more "human" look?

    Do a few searches on google for rock scapes. You will see in the ones that really stand out how the rock "makes sense". Don't really know how else to describe it:)
