Rock Garden

A Rock Garden is a rock activity that truly rocks and never dies. This summer activity can be done every year as you expand your rock collection.

What You'll Need:

  • Decorative rocks
  • Flowerbed

How to Make Rock Garden:

Many gardeners use rocks in their flowerbeds for decoration. You can do the same.

If you find larger rocks that you'd like to add to your collection, why not consider a rock garden in your own backyard?

Step 1: Clear a nice, flat part of your flowerbed, removing all weeds and grasses.

Step 2: Arrange some of your favorite bigger rocks on the soil. Keep the bigger rocks towards the back of the bed, the smaller towards the front (so you can see them all clearly).

Step 3: If you like, add some tiny gravel to complete the stoney look.
