the art of the rock garden


---



A spring garden might conjure images of lush green landscapes with tiny buds, but there are plenty of regions where traditional spring gardening isn’t an option. Thankfully, there are ways to spend time beautifying your yard this spring even if the ground conditions aren’t conducive to planting. Consider swapping sod for a hardscape and create a stylized rock garden. Get inspired with the following jumping-off points and then let your imagination be your guide.


As long as rock gardens incorporate rocks they can still include water features, shrubs, and trees. But keep it simple and low maintenance and focus on featuring mostly rocks. Determine where you want your rock garden located and clear the area of any existing plantings that you don’t want to incorporate into the design; however, you’ll want to keep small shrubs or trees because they lend needed contrast and varied heights.


Blend locally sourced rocks or boulders with rocks of other colors, shapes, and sizes. Let the natural terrain inspire a subtle design. Build a path with smooth river rocks that mimics a flowing creek, or frame a sculpture with an organic rock design. Written by Maresa Giovannini.
