Garden Styles / Gravel and Rock Garden
Rock gardens are designed to recreate the free-draining dry conditions of alpine meadows. While rock gardens can be expensive to build and are labor-intensive, a pleasing rock garden can be created and enjoyed even when space and resources are limited, by filling crevices between paving stones or using carpeting varieties at the front of a mixed border. You may transform a soft slope into a scree garden and plant an array of colorful rock plants that will scramble in and over small rocks or boulders. Raised beds are another pretty alternative as they provide excellent drainage and the perfect conditions to grow a rich selection of Alpine plants and dwarf hardy bulbs such as crocus, narcissus, tulip, chionodoxa, allium, eranthis or galanthus.

Blooming over a long season extending from late spring to fall, bright red and pink Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthus) cheerfully contrast with the evergreen ground-hugging Blue Chalk Stick (Senecio mandraliscae) and the incredibly elegant Agave demestiana 'Variegata'.
Get your landscape to burst into vivid life during the chillier months! Remember to plant a few Dwarf Irises (Iris reticulata) and Snowdrops (Galanthus) in the fall.
