The best part about rock gardens is that they are affordable and easy to maintain. Imagine a wonderfully designed, Japanese-style rock garden that creates a Zen-like backyard retreat. Our talented and imaginative design team can help you create a rock garden that will be the envy of your neighbors and friends.
Rock gardens provide a unique visual appeal by arranging rocks in a distinct manner. While you can certainly design your rock garden any way you please, there is also an art known as ishi wo tateru koto, which translates into “the act of setting stones upright.” You can honor this tradition or choose a more dynamic, western-style rock garden instead.
The use of gravel and sand can help fill in certain areas of your rock garden. Most people choose gravel since it does not collect water and is also less susceptible to wind than sand. However, some homeowners choose sand over gravel for a more comfortable walking surface in the rock garden. The choice between sand and gravel is a personal one, and depends on what your intended plans for your rock garden.
Rock gardens come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some have strict horizontal and vertical frameworks while others flow freely like nature itself. The creation of any rock garden depends on the brilliance and imagination of a great design team. Our talented rock garden experts can help bring whatever vision you have to life.
