Our New Rock Garden

The garden team completed a new rock garden in the paddock! The project was built from scratch from a flat weedy ground, collecting stones from our Willen site and a lucky donation found on Freecycle.

We used our own rubble first to make the base of the rockery and carefully placed the rocks effectively and stylishly. Then we put sand to hold the structure in, and finally, we planted alpine plants into soil pockets with an appropriate compost mix. The rock garden has a wide range of alpine and rock garden plants which will grow and flourish.

It’s an outstanding result from our dedicated and passionate gardeners! Thanks to everyone who participated in this project. It was hard work moving all those rocks!
