Rock Gardens can be great for creating interest in many parts of your garden. However, your rockery is ideally best suited near to the house or patio - unless you are a regular 'visitor' to your own garden.
One reason for this, is that the plants which are going to make your rock garden into the success you are trying to achieve, are usually small shrubs or dainty little alpines, and these kind of plants do not normally create the "sea of colour" that looks good from a distance!
Together with this, your rockery needs to be kept under close observation, because weeds can soon take hold, and if they are allowed to become firmly established in your rockery, they can be very difficult to remove without damaging your other plants.
We have helped to transform many of our clients gardens by introducing themed rockeries into them. Our team has many years of experience working with all types of plants and know which plants will work best in your rockery.
Many times a water feature is also one of the main attractions in rockeries. These can visually enhance the rockery and if planned correctly, can provide the water necessary for any plants which are surrounding the area.
Some creatures, such as worms, frogs and toads will often live in damp areas under rocks and beside pools of water. Birds may also build their nests on plants and spaces between the rocks or stones. We take all these things into consideration when planning your rockery.
I had the pleasure of placing a contract with GK Wilson Landscaping to carry out a full rear garden and drive way make over.
A brief summary would be as follows - removing and levelling a 3.5 x 3.5 meter area that was an eyesore to say the least & replacing it with top decking, removing our old & worn out patio/garden/wall & path area and transforming it with new Indian Stone/fencing & chippings, wow what a difference. All the fencing & gates that was standing up only by good luck were removed & new high grade fencing & gates installed with concrete posts & toe boards. The stone shed roof that was being held up only by internal shelving was removed & replaced this included roof beams & the floor was re-laid with concrete to form a firm standing base for new shelving. The drive way that was a mix of old chippings & dirt was excavated and a new sub-base laid with new chippings on top, again wow what a difference
Myself & my partner can't thank Gareth & his team enough for what they have been able to do with our eyesore, they worked none stop in atrocious conditions to deliver the project on time. Gareth kept us fully informed of progress, any issues that came up were communicated & dealt with in a professional manor.
Myself & my partner would have no hesitation in recommending GK Wilson Landscaping for you garden projects that you may be planing now or in the future.
