Rock Gardens can be great for creating interest in many parts of your garden. However, your rockery is ideally best suited near to the house or patio - unless you are a regular 'visitor' to your own garden.
One reason for this, is that the plants which are going to make your rock garden into the success you are trying to achieve, are usually small shrubs or dainty little alpines, and these kind of plants do not normally create the "sea of colour" that looks good from a distance!
Together with this, your rockery needs to be kept under close observation, because weeds can soon take hold, and if they are allowed to become firmly established in your rockery, they can be very difficult to remove without damaging your other plants.
We have helped to transform many of our clients gardens by introducing themed rockeries into them. Our team has many years of experience working with all types of plants and know which plants will work best in your rockery.
Many times a water feature is also one of the main attractions in rockeries. These can visually enhance the rockery and if planned correctly, can provide the water necessary for any plants which are surrounding the area.
Some creatures, such as worms, frogs and toads will often live in damp areas under rocks and beside pools of water. Birds may also build their nests on plants and spaces between the rocks or stones. We take all these things into consideration when planning your rockery.
Regarding recent work you have carried out on my garden, I would like to thank you in writing for the beautiful job you have done. The area looks absolutely brilliant and the shrubs and flowers you have selected and planted are so lovely.
Your guys were extremely polite when they arrived and knocked and introduced themselves. They worked really hard and talked me through everything they were doing. The outcome is much better than I had originally anticipated. They did a great job of cleaning up when they had finished the work and I can't stop going out looking at the end result! Have had the neighbours round to take a look so I hope it results in your getting more work in the area.
Many thanks Gareth.
