My wife and I shall be retiring to northern New Mexico in June. We've noted a large pile of rocks on a field and shall use them to create a rock garden in the turnaround circle at the house.
I have a basic plan and will create a dried stream bed effect undulating through the middle of this garden. I intend on using native cactus which we shall accumulate from friends of ours in that state.
While I can visualize the garden as it might develop, I am seeking some ideas on interesting rock shapes and relationships that would make the garden appealing, in addition to the cacti/succulents to be planted in the spaces between the rocks.
I'd appreciate any insights or specific websites that illustrate very interesting desert rock gardens.
Thank you in advance,
