How to Create a Rock Garden
“Few are able to deny the magnetism that rock gardens have. If you’ve never seen one, a rock garden is simply a plot with a mix of rocks and any of several special species of small flowers. Some would say that because rocks are permanent, solid and rugged, they complement the delicacy of flowers. The Japanese recognized the calming and meditative effect of rock arrangement as far back as the medieval era when they developed the Zen garden. Fortunately, forging a beautiful and relaxing rock garden in your yard is surprisingly simple.”
Rock gardens are so enchanting and provide a gorgeous landscaping opportunity. They also provide the benefit of lower water bills and easier landscape upkeep since you won’t have to frequently mow and fertilize a lawn. And it’s nice and easy to plant a few flowers and some ground cover here and there to add some color.
