Building of rockeries
You may have a very large garden, with infinite choice of space or a very small space. Regardless of garden size, the most important consideration for placement is to ensure your rockery garden is on a slope in part or full sun. If you have a very flat garden space, you could use build your rockery garden here, however you will need to ensure it blends into your garden space effectively.
As a general rule, try to stick to only one type of rockery stone for your garden to ensure consistency and an authentic look. Rough-shaped rocks are ideal for a natural rockery effect – ideal for a traditional, rustic feel home/ garden.
