Planning a rockery

I am thinking of making a small rockery near the front of the house. Some people think it's a great idea, others think I'm mad because it will make more work. What do you think? PatriciaQ, Ballsbridge, Co Dublin Posted: 14/03/2008

First of all, a small rockery does not take a great deal of maintenance, such as weeding, and it can be a very pretty decorative feature in the right place, and that is the key to making a decision about a small rock garden. Because the plants are small, they cannot be seen from much distance. So it is always best to place a rock garden in a place where it can be seen and value got from it.

Usually a good place is close to a paved area, which itself is usually close to the house, where it can be seen. Whether the front of the house is a good place needs to be considered. It can be fine because the area can be seen on passing into and out of the house.
