Do I move big rock or work around it?

schabadooApril 23, 2009

Hi,

I had a contractor fill my sloping front yard with fill, and now have a good sized rock right in the middle. I grabbed a picture:

I was going to move it down towards the corner of the rock wall next to another larger rock with a similar appearance, but am wondering if I should leave it and plant around it.

My other thought is to just roll it straight down and use it halfway along the wall, breaking up the big ones.

Any input would be welcomed.

I like your idea of leaving it and planting around it.

I'd plant around it too.

yep, leave it, and plant around it. I have entire rock walls (solid, one huge rock) and plant right around it. Looks very natural that way.
