The best gardens are the ones that you don’t have to water, and when it comes to watering requirements, rocks are at the bottom of the list. As a builder of rock gardens in the Kansas City area, Hermes Landscaping strongly recommends including plenty of rocks in your design plans.
When adding rocks into small spaces, it’s important to first consider the size of the rocks themselves. The larger the rock, the more confined the space will become. However, if you select light colored rocks such as limestone or sandstone, you can liven the space up and make it feel larger in the process.
It is also advisable to build your rocks up to create height. This allows you to go up when you can’t go out, and by placing flowering plants along the artificial terrace, you will make it seem as if the rocks are simply growing towards the heavens.
