The plants used in rockeries are usually low and slow-growing and do well in dry areas. If you want to create a garden rockery, you can try slope garden rockery. Steep slopes can be a challenge to gardeners, and a rockery is the best solution for these areas. Use larger rocks and position them to create an attractive visual balance. The best types of plants for a slope rockery are those that spill over, as well as mounded plants and ornamental grasses. Succulents that thrive in the sun and dry soil are also a good choice.
