Natural Beauty: Creating a Rock Garden

In this time of quarantine and social distancing, people have become have started turning their attention to projects they have neglected at home.

You now have time to build the shelf that has been sitting in its box, you can put up that light fixture you've wanted for so long, and finally plant that garden you've put on the backburner for months.

But why not try something new? These days, everyone is trying to find new, innovative ways to make their home truly unique. One way you can do this is to build a rock garden.

If you are thinking to yourself, "why should I have something as silly as a rock garden?" then you've come to the right place; here are some reasons and benefits for building a rock garden to make your home look different than the rest!

Benefits Of a Rock Garden

Now, when you think of a rock garden, what comes to mind is a pile of...well, rocks. But they are so much more than that. They offer advantages over a traditional garden.

Adverse Climates

Rock gardens offer the unique privilege of being able to be in virtually any and every environment. With flower gardens, you are often left to the mercy of what can withstand the local climate.

This can limit you to what you can and can't grow at your home. But with a rock garden, you have no limitations!

Lower Maintenance

Where you have to spend hours pruning, planting, and watering regular flower gardens, with rock gardens these tasks are virtually non-existent. The only effort made is the initial landscaping for your rock garden.

Even this can be taken care of by our people at Scott's Landscaping.

Our professional landscapers can help you with the layout of your rock garden and aid in the rock garden ideas, which is important to the longevity of your garden layout. Landscaping can also add value to your home and building a rock garden will do just that.

Versatile and Large

Rock gardens can give your yard the appearance that it is more spacious than what it actually is. Not only does this make your yard look aesthetically pleasing, but it makes it hospitable for all four seasons.

Where most flower gardens only offer seasonal splendour, a well landscaped and maintained rock garden will give you the yard your neighbours envy when their yard looks dormant during the cold months.

They also give the feeling of peacefulness; there is a reason why zen gardens are usually rock gardens. A rock garden will give you the serenity we all so desperately need during this time of uncertainty.

Rock Gardens Rock!

With so many benefits to having a rock garden for your home, there is little reason why you shouldn't. They offer serene space all year round, give you the unique look that many people lack, and most importantly are money-friendly, low maintenance, and high aesthetic projects.

Be the envy of your neighbourhood, but make sure they don't bring it to your rock garden, it's a peaceful zone.
