A Small Rock Garden Design

When you have a garden at home you must decide what to do with it. You can use it only for barbecues and so you place a nice outdoor bench and swing or you can arrange a small rose garden in a corner or you can use it as a small beach around the pool and so on. One of the most convenient and also beautiful solutions even for small gardens is to build a small rock garden like the one you can see in these pictures. It’s not very difficult to design and build and it keeps its natural appearance, bringing a corner of the mountain view in your city garden.

You don’t need too much space so, once you have decided about the position and size of the rock garden you can start building it. It is pretty useful if there are any little “hills” of materials left from building your house because you can cover them with earth and use as part of the design. And the most important part is to find and bring some rocks from the mountains because it is better to look natural and your rock garden will not look natural if you use some round stones from the river or from the store. Then bring some vegetation that is also specific for this rocky area and arrange everything in a nice way.

As an extra bonus to this small rock garden you can add a little pond. Use some water proof material on the bottom of a hole dug in the garden and then fill it with water. Some water-loving plants will make the landscape perfect. So now enjoy the nice little mountain in your garden.
