A rock garden is a great way to spice up the average garden of flowers and plants. Using natural rocks and stones are the best way to positively impact your rock garden. Find beautiful stones in your garden and go to a specialist for more. You can also ideally add plants, flowers, trees, shrubs and even fishponds to these gardens. When adding plants or flowers, make sure you stack flat rocks around them so water will flow to the roots of the plants and be kept at the roots. Arrange these rocks so they are partially in dirt and partially on other rocks. A rock garden is an ideal place for adding benches or garden furniture so people will have a greater opportunity of admiring your garden. They can also section off different parts of the garden if the garden is quite large. A consideration that can influence the design of these gardens is space. In larger spaces, the goal is often to create sprawling, natural rock gardens. In smaller spaces, it is better to stick to a round raised bed made of select rocks. This design can fit neatly into a space you choose.
When arranging your stones, make sure you ground them well so they look natural. When you observe a rocky terrain with wild plants growing on it, you will see there is not a mixture of species. What you will find are large patches of low-growing plants. If you like creeping phlox, for instance, but never know where to put it, a rock garden might just be ideal. To be successful in mimicking nature with your garden design, you’ll need to have a certain mindset when it comes to design: evenness in size or distribution looks unnatural in rock garden design.
