A rockery is the perfect solution to convert and unused area into something beautiful. Lots of people like the idea of having a rockery but really don’t know where to start.

A rockery can look great in the corner of a big garden, or as a centrepiece for a small garden or courtyard in fact most gardens can include a rockery if desired. If you don’t want the hassle of having to weed a huge open flower bed then having a rockery can make the job simpler.

You first need to gather together some rocks. These ideally need to be quite large and if you do not already have some in your garden then you may need to go and buy some. It is always worth asking around in your local neighbourhood or on social media pages to see if anyone has any they may give to you as it can be quite expensive having to buy them.

The largest rocks will sit in the middle of the rockery so choose ones that are suitable in terms of size and shape. Secure them by filling in around them with soil and smaller rocks, layering them to give a natural look.

You can now get creative with plants such as shamrocks and heathers to fill up some of the gaps between the rocks.
