Rock garden designs can be easily arranged with planning. They are very different depending on the size, number of stones, design fashion and materials. Popular option are the Japanese and the alpine gardens. Creating a rock garden has many benefits. On one hand, the stones are fairly easy to care for, on the other hand they can be easily and simply transformed. In a small garden rocks give the impression of a large landscape, which is supported by lush vegetation. A calming effect is achieved with eye-catching larger stones.

Rocks turn any outdoor space into an idyllic open-air oasis where you can relax. A rock garden layout may include lots of plants and decorative elements, combined with a water fountain or a pond. However, without this the outdoor area can also look quite cozy. At first you should make a plan. People who do not like flowers growing between the stones should install a root-proof film.
