Rock garden and rockery – garden of stones
Rock gardens and rockeries are true rock gardens. The first option requires the presence of hills, covered with rock vegetation, and for the second, rockery, will fit any landscape, even a perfectly flat ground.
In addition, there plants are of secondary importance.
To make it clearer, in rockeries main “actors” – the stones and in rock gardens they are, these stones are the backdrop for the plants.
There are several kinds of the rock garden. They repeat different parts of highlands. So, rocky cliff called a jumble of large boulders with minimal vegetation in “pockets” and niches.
On the hillside you will see the complex high composition of stones of different sizes, which complements a large variety of dwarf plants.
A valley in the mountains is mostly large stones that partially protrude from the ground and surrounded by a profusely flowering ornamental plants.

The gabions in the garden: a Fashionable trend in landscape design or What can be done with mesh and stones
Gabions – literally “the big cage” (FR. – gabion, ital. – gabbione). Dimensional products from wire twisted wire mesh, filled with stones (and sometimes wood or glass).
Them today used to create fences, high raised beds, pots for flowers, benches and garden furniture, for decoration of lanterns, pond and beyond.
For zoning the space to, for example, separate gazebo or pool from the garden as separate design elements: floral stands, fences, benches, steps – in General, gabions are simply unique.
They are an outstanding and aesthetically elegant as in landscaping and in the industrial sector.
Gabions are perfectly combined with greenery, turning into a stunning composition.
Usually form stones in the gabion does not matter, but the size Yes. It is important that the cell size of the gabion was smaller than the size of the stones, to avoid loss of filler.
The color of the stones – the most different: from snow white to deep black. If you choose a colored filling, you can put in the gabion ornament.
