If you’re looking for ways to make your outdoor space ‘pop’ an eye-catching rock garden creates a vibe of added interest to your landscape. Rock gardens create an interesting focal point that will look amazing all year round so long as you use the right plants. Many people like to plant their rock gardens with perennial herbs and culinary plants, so their space is useful as well as great-looking. Alternatively, using brightly-coloured perennial plants is another popular choice.
Planning Your Rock Garden
Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to planning out your rock garden. You can make it as large or as small as you wish. If you’re not much of a gardener, starting off small is probably your best bet. Before you even begin choosing your rocks, it’s important to decide on the species of plants you wish to grow. You can either research these online or visit your local landscape nursery for more information and inspiration. You should remember to choose plants that don’t grow too high and that flourish in our WA climate.
Deciding on the Location
Bear in mind that your plants will need light to grow so you’re best creating your new rock garden in a sunny spot without shade. That being said, you also don’t want to have too much direct sunlight either as this could damage your delicate plants. Choose a location that receives a couple of hours of good sunlight every day for best results.
