Rock gardens have increased in popularity as a creative landscaping tool due to the character and texture they contribute to a yard scene.

Rock gardens are a clever and cost-effective option that will enhance a monotonous or mundane yard setting. These simple, picturesque rock gardens are composed of various sized rocks artistically arranged on a plot of ground and accented by plants and small flowers.
The B&D Rockeries article emphasizes how installing a rock garden is conveniently simple. The best place to build one is on a patch of ground on a slight slope, either natural or built using small retaining walls. The foundation below the rocks is composed of various mineral layers in order to provide enough water drainage, and topsoil is selected specifically for the greenery and flowers that will be planted among the rocks.
The rock garden should look natural in order to compliment the landscape scene. Typically, it is best to select rocks from the yard itself. B&D Rockeries suggests that the rocks be arranged in an ordinary manner; avoid symmetrical formations that look unnatural. After the rocks are placed, let the garden sit for a couple of weeks, giving the formation time to settle into the soil before the flowers and greenery are planted.
Rock gardens are a versatile landscaping tool that can be customized to fit the needs of any yard scene. Each one is unique and can contribute aesthetically to any landscape by adding personality a lonesome flower garden cannot offer on its own.
