River Rocks - Japanese Rock Garden
Category Landscape Rock
A Japanese rock garden can take any outdoor space to the next level, and this type of hardscaping is usually very easy to care for as long as you plan ahead. With a little bit of maintenance and some high-quality materials, you can rest assured you’ll be able to enjoy your rock garden for many years to come. Here’s a quick look at a few of the steps you’ll need to take to create a personalized decorative rock garden on your property. 

Find the Perfect Location

While you can create a beautiful Japanese rock garden almost anywhere, you should spend a little bit of time looking for the best location. As a general rule, you should choose an area that has at least some shade so you and your guests will be able to enjoy the garden without being in constant sunlight. It’s also suggested that you find an area with some type of access to water for spraying the plants and cleaning the decorative rocks. 

Choose the Right Decorative Rocks

The types of decorative rocks you choose will depend on many different factors, including your budget, the total amount of space that’s going to be filled, and your personal preferences. For larger areas, you might want to consider white pebbles or Caribbean beach pebbles. Once you’ve chosen the perfect decorative rocks or beach pebbles, you’ll then need to use a calculator to figure out exactly how many pounds will be needed. You should also take a look at larger boulders and rock formations that can be used to complement the other beach pebbles. 

Plant the Foliage

Even if most of the garden is going to be made up of decorative rocks, you’ll still probably want to have at least a few trees, bushes, and flowers. The species you plant will be heavily dependent on your climate and how much time you’re willing to devote to caring for them. If you want a Japanese garden that’s relatively easy to take care of, you might want to fill the larger areas with decorative rocks such as black polished pebbles while only using a few hardier trees or bushes as accent details. 

Include Additional Features

Once you have your garden set up exactly how you want it, it’s time to consider the finishing touches. At the very least, you should have a comfortable area where you can place a few benches or chairs so you can enjoy all of your hard work. 

Water features are also very popular in Japanese gardens, and they’ll turn your outdoor space into an oasis. If you plan on investing in any ponds or other larger water features, you’ll most likely want to have the irrigation lines put in place before you install the decorative rock formations or plant any trees.
