The Rock Garden at the Community Center
is growing slowly since we planted it about two months ago. I explained in an earlier post about the new venture for our Master Gardener project here in the community
It is growing well but slowly. I am a little concerned about the drainage, as it appears to me that water appears to have been puddling in the beds, causing that washed through look. What do you think? I think some of the gravel rock is being exposed and I am not really liking the look of it.
I think that we need to add more plants to the hypertufa garden or hopefully these will grow more to fill in. I am not a fan of the gravel or smaller loose stone. I would prefer maybe a finer small stone on the surface. But that is just my preference. I need to get together with our committee so we can discuss it.
The hypertufa troughs and bowl look good. ( I didn’t make those, they came from Cox Arboretum. They make them on site for their rock garden displays. )
I would be glad to add some of my hypertufa creations, but I must get the approval of our chairperson. I want to add some Erodium too! I think it would spread and look really nice.
Let me know what you think about our rock garden or hypertufa garden. Am I being too critical? We need a lot more plants, not to mention some decorative tiny gravel.
What is your take on this?
