Creating Natural Features For Your Backyard
Rock garden designs are very versatile and can be created for any size front lawn or the backyard. They are extremely easy to maintain, requiring very little attention from the homeowner. Most homeowners will select and plant native plants that are suitable for the rocks in the garden.
These plants are usually low-growing, low-maintenance plants that will thrive in most climates. Some examples of appropriate plants include hostas, red beets, purple coneflower, blue star sea oats, blue star snowdrops, and cosmos.
Many homeowners also choose to plant herbs and flowers in their rock gardens, including lavender, marigolds, horsetail, sweet pea, rue, alstroemeria, verbena, Columbine, blue star, Columbine, aqua, purple car, dwarf kelp, and more.
Most rock garden designs are designed with the presence of large boulders and large rocks as the focal point of the planting beds. In most cases, these large rocks are set into the soil beneath the smaller plants, which in turn are planted and maintained above the loose soil surface.
To add additional interest and definition, many people opt to lay paths throughout their gardens, using natural stone. Pathways can be made by removing large stones or large boulders, or by using a variety of other landscape accessories such as small pebbles, rounded stones, flagstone, railroad ties, decorative gravel, bricks, etc.
It is important to remember that the path should complement the size of the boulders and stones, and should not take focus away from the rocks themselves. Another option for creating pathways is to place large rocks on the flat part of a patio or deck, which is great for creating an area that borders a yard or porch, while still allowing people to pass through the area without bumping into the house or landscaping.
