Incorporate Your Flower Bed and Rock Garden Incorporate Your Flower Bed and Rock Garden

Incorporating your flower bed and rock garden is quite easy to do. Since rock gardens tend to be located in uneven terrain or on steep slopes, it is a good idea to create them first. Adding a flower bed is then a simple task.

Pockets

The easiest way to incorporate a flower bed into your rock garden is simply to create small pockets where you can plant some colorful flowers. It is a good idea to do this in an area that you can easily get to in order to water and do maintenance work when needed. For flowers that will come back year after year, try planting some perennials instead of annuals.

Tiers

For those who don’t mind a little extra work and want lots of color, then a great idea is to plant a flower bed at the back of the rock garden. This is usually the high spot, so you can plant different layers of taller and then shorter flowers so that every vivid color can be seen from below.

Incorporating a flower bed and rock garden is easy to do as long as you plan out how much work you want to put into it.
