Make a rockery in your garden with this easy to follow Letsfixit guide. Simply plot a layout of your rock garden on paper. Include as much detail as possible so that you will be able to identify and resolve problems before you have to move heavy rocks around to solve problems.
Introduce some visually unifying element into your rockery either by selecting rocks that all come from one geographic region or rocks that are all the same size or shape.
Lay the rocks out in the pattern of your choice. View the setup from the angles and distances from where you expect to view the finished project. Alter the rocks' positions until you achieve the look you want.
Place your plants among the rocks. Arrange plants that need faster and more thorough drainage at the top of the slope. Incorporate plants that prefer moister conditions at the base of the slope or at plateaus within your rockery.
