Planting plants among rocks

Posted by sah54 (My Page) on

I have a small area (about 100 square feet) that I am going to put 1 inch river rock in. I would like to plant 3 or 4 plants in this area. Right now, I have it dug down to 3 inches. When I plant the plants (before adding the rock) should I raise the area to ground level before I dig the hole or just dig the hole where the ground is now and then add 3 inches of rock?

I'm having the rock delivered this Friday so I can start hauling it to the back yard this weekend. I'll be buying the plants tomorrow.

It is hard to make any recommendations unless we know where you are. As well as the nature of the area being worked.

RE: Planting plants among rocks

what about putting containers among/hidden by the rocks?
