Pond Shore Rock Garden
Ideas for planting rock gardens on the edges of garden ponds and waterfalls
Generally, the edges and shores of garden ponds and waterfall are created from arrangements of stacked rock and decorative landscaping stones. However most of the time, the rocks are confined to just creating the border or edge of the pond. This garden, on the other hand, offers some good ideas for creating a rock garden that extends the rocks and plants into the surrounding landscape.
Besides tying the pond shore into the surrounding landscape, the rocks also create accent pieces and natural areas to plant around. And as for the planting scheme, you can see some great examples of mass planting as well as unity that is created in the entire garden that surrounds the pond.
