Rock gardens support a variety of small plants. Large rock pieces are placed in a raised fashion to aid drainage and provide shade or sun traps depending on plant types. Whether you’ve got a large plot or a small space, rockeries are a great way to add definition. Use sandstone or slate rockery to maintain ph levels in the soil as limestone rockery will increase alkaline content. Bed plants into compost that has been mixed with potting grit to increase drainage. Choose a natural or light reflecting alpine gravel as a bed topper
Designed to stimulate meditation and feelings of calm, Japanese Zen gardens are miniature landscapes which use gravel to imitate water flowing around rockery and planting. You can adapt this style to suit your garden by selecting elements to create an oriental retreat. Choose small alpine gravels with a size of less than 10mm for perfect raked lines. Large pieces of rockery and boulders create eye catching feature islands. Use glistening polished pebbles in water features to give extra appeal. Small fountains and water features give the calming sound of running water in a low maintenance format
