Rock garden designs can range from to sprawling, naturalistic creations to faux dried river beds to rustic mounds of stones, soil, and plants. It all depends on your preferences and the amount of space (and rock) you have to work with.

Your rock garden design can feature smooth pebbles, small trees, weathered stone, and sandy soil. If you want to create a natural world in your outdoor space, then there’s nothing wrong with that.
