Ideas for rockery planting (with picture)
I have small rockery shown on picture:
that i want to replant and maybe move some rocks as well, but i am new to rock gardening. This area is a slop on right side of driveway, driveway (you see gray cement in lower part of picture) is dividing frontyard in two parts, left part is on driveway level but right is more then two feet higher. We did not want to build a retaining wall but settled on some rockery along driveway.
I know that i need to improve soil (currently it's mostly clay covered with bark). I am planning to add pea gravel.
I know that i want to remove this rose bush because i want this corner to be evergreen.
Possible some dwarf conifer to plant instead of this rose?
Will appreciate any ideas as well as some reading source recomendation.
Maybe i should remove part of soil and move rocks up so slop would not be so steep?
This is only a part of long rockery, but i don't have time to do all together, will try to learn rock garden art and work piece by piece.
