The Pacific Northwest Rock Garden

This is a south facing view of my garden

where the rock garden resides. The soil was to hard

to have Alpines or Rock garden plants to thrive so

I had to raise the soil. The neighbor had a few large

bolder left from the rock wall and a little talking

the the tractor guy, I was able to get the rocks moved

in place. The next step was to place a erosion barrier

fabric at the base to help hold in any particulates

for the plant roots. After a little digging and the

fabric was laid, on came the unwashed pea gravel.

To add a little more particulate, I top dressed the

pea gravel with a mixture of sand and peatmoss and

washed it all down with the garden hose.
