Alpine slide on a garden plot
Let's consider some variants of rock gardens, which are mainly used as elements of a holistic ensemble in complex garden design.
One of the elements of the composition of the "mountain" type of rock garden is the "alpine lawn". It is used to model the vegetation of a high-altitude landscape. The most difficult thing in this case when creating an alpine slide is to create comfortable conditions for the life of alpine wild plants, such as edelweiss, gentians, saxifrages, low-growing cereals and other representatives of the highlands. Under favorable conditions of cultural life, wild species, as a rule, multiply intensively, as a result of which regular care and control are necessary to maintain the created plant ensemble and the ratio between its individual elements.
The gorge is an element of a complex overall composition of landscape design. The hillsides are laid using the method of dry masonry with boulders and stones. The artistic composition of such an artificially created gorge will look more spectacular if its walls are lined with boulders that will have different sizes and heights. At the same time, the illumination of the territory improves, creating favorable conditions for planting various types of rock vegetation.
To build a "ravine in the forest thicket", it is necessary to have a hollow of insignificant depth on a natural part of the garden territory. Large stones are planted on the walls of the hollow to strengthen the slopes. Vegetation is planted mainly of conifers that grow horizontally or shrubs, and also inhabit the soil with perennial plants that are resistant to a lack of lighting and tolerant of shading, such as Volzhanka and ferns. At the same time, an important rule of planting should be observed: they should not be planted too thickly and often. A small spring located in the center will complement the original composition of the ravine.
If your suburban area is located in an area of excessive moisture, then the alpine slide on its territory turns into a small swamp. If there is a garden in a hilly area, such a design solution of the rock garden will be especially appropriate and attractive. To form such a swamp in a waterlogged area, it is necessary to dig a small hole, the depth of which will not exceed 700 mm. In the absence of the necessary conditions for excessive humidification, they should be organized independently, create an artificial pond of medium size. Along the entire edge of the reservoir, you need to lay boulders of a rounded shape, immersing them in the ground almost completely. You can decorate the swamp with all kinds of driftwood. The reservoir itself can be populated with swamp plants, while moisture-loving forms should be planted along the perimeter of the reservoir.
