What Is Rock Gardening?

Really, the concept of rock gardening isn’t too hard to grasp. A rock garden is a cleverly planned, sustainable garden which focuses on rock forms and design as much as the plants that are used. When built right, rock gardens require little care or maintenance, making them perfect for people who don’t have a lot of time to commit to their garden.
