Rock gardens are once again in style, because they really fit today’s lifestyle with limited time for gardening. They’re perfect focal point areas because the rocks themselves are so beautiful and look good year round. Rocks and water are a natural pairing, so a rock garden surrounding a small pond or waterfall can be a great investment and add a calming environment. You can choose local rocks, big specimen rocks, imported rocks of a special color to suit your surroundings – checking around with local quarries or building supply dealers will reveal a wide array of choices.
Rock gardens are a great way to display small plants – especially alpines – to great advantage.
