I really like rock gardens because they give you a rich landscape without requiring as much maintenance. This also goes a long way towards saving the homeowner money, and with a property such as this one that can be a big deal. Now, if you have a smaller property, you can still do a nice rock garden. You may not be able to include a pool such as they have done here, but you might be able to get a little fountain amidst the rocks, which can look very cool. This property does have some growing things such as small bushes and trees, which again you can model if you have a smaller property that you want o do similar designs for.
