Garden with Rocks and Bushes

backyard landscaping

This landscape design is a really nice mix of rocks and plants. I love rock gardens on their own, but what I really love is when you can have both. It is trickier than it looks, though, because you want to be sure that you have a good balance of elements in the design, rather than having too much of one thing. For example, if there were too many rocks, then it would look more like some weeds had crept up among them. In like manner if there were too many plants then having any rocks at all would be pointless because they would not really be visible.
