Garden on a rock, with layers of large stones and colorful Alpine plants may look great, if assembled properly. This is the perfect way to combine different levels of gardens. One of its most important features is that it should resemble natural rock slope rather than a bunch of large stones piled with plants growing through them. This requires skill in site selection and stones, imposing stones so that they looked natural. A very small amount of soil must be visible in a garden - it should be tightly Packed into the cracks between the stones and, as an option, is covered by a layer of gravel or sand. It will be not only to mask its presence, but also to help keep the humidity in the summer.
It is very important to choose the right site for a rock garden. Although you can build a rocky garden on flat ground, but in this case it is difficult to guarantee its natural look. Much better if you make a rock garden on an existing slope in your garden, this area should be fully illuminated by the sun, although not all day. The rock garden should not be under the trees, with which Alpine plants would be dripping rainwater. The plot for a rock garden should be well drained, he must stand on a solid basis.
It is also important that you are not ripped back in an attempt to move the stones. Believe me, even the small stones are heavy, if you are going to raise them, do it, bending your knees and keeping your back straight, you can roll the stones on the ground, the stones of smaller size can be moved on a cart, but large stones should be moved using a sturdy wooden levers, you can also move them using wooden rollers or the rope which tied a stone and raise two people. It is advisable to use natural stone for your area to the rock garden looked natural. In any case, choose a Sandstone or limestone, which tolerates weather and looks good.
The cultivation of Alpine plants require dry areas for good growth and flowering. There are many attractive ways to grow Alpine plants. Old walls create the perfect site where seeds can be sown directly into the soil. In a well-folded rock garden plants with different requirements can be grown in separate fields in a way that looks more natural. Trough and old barrels also guarantee the required conditions and create the perfect look. They may have a few small stones set in the ground for rocky view.
Creating a rock garden
Mark the shape of a garden on earth, using thread stretched between landmarks or home. Dig the designated area.
Dig out the soil within the area, save the fertile soil for mixing with sand as a fertile environment. Seal the base, slightly on her topcash; higher density can impede drainage.
Then place the biggest stone, and build a V-shaped frame, using smaller stones. Try to lay them flat side up, if possible.
Fill the area behind the smaller stones, soil and sand. Align the mixture.
Build a second layer of stones on top of the first row, but on the edge leave the necessary space for plants between the stones in two layers.
Remove plants from pots and place them in the holes between the cracks and rocks. When the planting is done, sprinkle the soil with a layer of fine sand or gravel.
Alpine plants that require very good drainage, it is better to grow in the flower beds rocky talus. It is, essentially, the raised bed with soil, replaced by stone gravel. The rubble walls of Sandstone, brick or broken road tiles can be used to support the sides of the beds, they need to give the inner slope for stability. Put the lowest stones on concrete base; the upper rows can be dry or filled with soil to accommodate plants that like to grow in the cracks (they should be planted during the construction of constructions). Drainage hole left in the Foundation wall at short intervals. The bed should be at least 60 cm in height, if it is built on clay soil to ensure good drainage and at least 30 cm high on a sandy soil. Place a 10-15 cm layer of broken bricks and rubble at the base of the flower beds and use the following compost to fill the rest of: 10 pieces of gravel, 1 part loam, 1 part compost and 1 part sand.
Often when garden lighting uses various elements of street lighting. The most appropriate garden Park lamps, which are the perfect lighting tool and at the same time, excellent interior.
