This type of garden is of the latest generation, modern and special: it integrates rocky elements with plants and nature. The stones are special and have a strong ornamental value.This type of garden is normally created in places with a more or less marked slope just to stem the problem of erosion.These gardens protect from humidity, drafts and winds: it is necessary to have a rather large space to realize this type of garden and also the building costs are not low, given the particularity and the high ornamental value of each single rock. In these gardens various types of plants can be housed: small plants are the most suitable and will make the environment more natural, without excesses.Characteristic to keep in mind is that thanks to the presence of the rocks there is no dispersion of heat and therefore plants like the fat ones or those of Alpine origin survive and grow in perfect symbiosis with the environment, protecting them from sudden changes in temperature.Plants that normally live in desert or South African areas are also perfect, as they will find an optimal habitat here. To give a touch of mystery and melancholy you can plant northern plants that will create the right scenery.The stones will be arranged from bottom to top in descending order of magnitude to give a sense of naturalness to the whole. If you have special stones available, they will be placed in plain sight to make them stand out and increase the artistic value of your garden.To stabilize the larger stones, small holes will have to be dug where to place them, while the smaller stones will be placed around the larger ones.In these gardens also climbing plants and branches and trunks placed at random are perfect, perhaps to form small ponds surrounded by gravel.gardens: Italian garden
Unlike an English garden, this type of garden follows a precise pattern and each plant must take on a precise position and shape.
The rigor is the watchword for this garden: the hedges must be very defined so as to create real labyrinths. The Italian garden needs large spaces.
