Great Ways to Incorporate Rock into Your Garden

by Sandmans Workshop Business
Rocks have many uses in any garden landscape. Being creative in how you use them will see you add character to your overall garden landscape.

Rocks are interesting elements to add to your landscape. You do not have to cover your whole garden with rocks to make it into a stone garden. Creative use of the pieces will have your garden looking great in no time. You will find very many ways that you can add rock into your garden. If you are not sure where to begin, you can have an expert landscaper help to transform your stone garden.

Turn your mulch into rocks

Placing small rocks instead of mulch gives you a better cover for your plants. Rocks do not need replacing and will therefore last in your garden for a long time to come. They provide a neat ground cover while adding a decorative element to your garden. The rocks effectively stop weed growth. A great gardener's tip is to use light colored rocks as they provide a sharp contrast against the dark leaves. This will lighten dark areas of your garden.

Create a stone garden

This is simple to create in a sunny area of your garden. Two to three small boulders will work for this project. You need to plant creeping flowering plants that will grow over the rock. The flowers will add color to your garden. You can use smaller stones to cover any areas where there are no flowers. This rock arrangement will add a beautiful focal point to your garden and provides a simple way to incorporate stone in your landscape.

Use rock as a centerpiece for your garden

A rock provides a great centerpiece for your garden. Use a boulder with a unique shape to serve as a focal point. Using a rock as a centerpiece will address the challenge posed by plants that might grow out of control. It also does not require any maintenance such as pruning, which is good when you want to reduce the amount of work you do in the garden. The rock can also come in handy to break the monotony of live borders such as hedges.

Use rock for seating

You can commission the creation of rock benches. These are easy to customize as you can use them to commemorate events. You can have a beautiful manufactured-stone bench done for a personalized anniversary gift. You can have the bench engraved with whichever wording or decorations you want. You can even get photo slates in addition to the bench engraving. A bench can be a unique addition to your garden landscape. You can use dark or light stone depending on the effect you want to add to your garden.
