Rock garden and alpine garden in 50 inspiring ideas

Having a rock garden or an alpine garden makes each outdoor area more beautiful and helps create visual interest. These two types of gardens extend the variety of vegetation that you can plant by creating special environments for alpine species.

Alpine plants grow on rocky mountain slopes where soil drainage is good and there is plenty of light. By using carefully placed stones and rocks, it is possible to recreate these conditions in a miniature garden – a large rock positioned in the right place will create south and north slopes for example.

Your rock garden should be located away from any tree and shrubs to make the most of the light. The garden can be bigger or smaller, depending on your preferences and available space. If you have a large garden, you will need special equipment to work the land by giving it a shape and lifting it. In a smaller garden you may not need special equipment even if the crowbar can still help you move the rocks.

The type of stone and boulder you will use in your garden garden is very important. Local stones are often the best choice and always give the landscape a very natural look. After choosing the stones and rocks you will use, place them to the north to have different angles with different micro-climates in the garden. Place the largest rock, the one that will play the role of master piece, first and use the smaller rocks and stones to secure it. Then cover them with a layer of weed-free vegetal soil.
Fill the space with small rocks and stones by also covering them with earth. Finally, use a small portion of the small rocks to create “pockets” of planting – small forms where the rocks can hold the composting mixture in place. It is possible to make your own composting mix by mixing equal amounts of weed-free soil, horticultural kernel and leaf paste. Use this mixture to fill planting pockets and crevices between rocks.
