Rock Backyard Landscaping Ideas
The first thing to do when starting your rock backyard landscaping is to carefully look over the proposed site for your backyard. Remove any spindly grass varieties as well as any diseased plants and trees and any other plants you don’t want there. If you don’t want your rock backyard to be spoiled by unwanted ferns or intrusive perennials later on, you should be sure to get all the roots out of the ground now.
After you have improved the soil, then it is time to place your rocks. For aesthetic reason, don’t space your rocks evenly, or use rocks that are the same shape or size. Variety is key when choosing rocks for your rock garden, just as it is when choosing plants for a conventional garden. If you want to have a lot of plants in your rock garden, then you will have to space the rocks further apart to give the plants room. On the other hand, if you are only going to use a few plants, leave less space between the rocks, but leave space for the plants to grow. Your rock backyard will be more attractive the more natural you can make the design look.
