How to Make a Rock Garden

Nice DIY on how to make your own rock garden. Rock gardens are great front yard landscaping ideas and can be made large or small.

Pinner says . . . Work a bag of dry concrete mix into the soil where stone is to sit, lay stone, water it all in so it sets just like Jello only harder!

Hypertufa casting for the garden. A really good post on how too with a lot of ideas for objects you can make very simply

work gloves and your favorite hypertufa or soil cement mix.

Find the bottom of your rock shell and turn up side down. Block it so it can't roll. Make mix. Quikcrete or quick wall a little dry and cover the bottom and down the sides a little. This layer will be about 1" thick. I use latex gloves to apply and smooth it. When your applying the mix don't press down to hard or the mix will fall through. Let dry 24 hours. Turn right side and repeat. Let dry 24 hours. At some point you power wash it. Before starting the 2nd layer.
