Unlike traditional plant gardens, landscaping rock gardens are easy to maintain and simple to create using inexpensive supplies.

Creating Japanese Rock Gardens

Japanese or Zen rock gardens are, perhaps, the best-known types of natural rock gardens. In some parts of Asia, these gardens or "dry landscapes" are considered a true art form and have graced the land around Zen Buddhist temples for over 1,000 years.

Fountains, waterfalls and various lighting effects are easy to add using simple kits. Fish and water plants are optional, but add vibrancy to any natural rock garden.
