Rock Gardens: Find the Best Stone for Your Rock Garden

Before you landscape with rocks, it pays to learn where your stones come from and how they were gathered.

“Rocks are the bones of the garden,” says Martin Mosko, founder of Marpa and Associates in Boulder, Colorado. “Like bone, rock doesn’t change, but when you place ephemeral elements such as plants or water next to the unchanging structure of stone, it creates magic in the garden.”
