Types of Landscaping with alpine plants
There is something in the garden design with small alpine plants, which fascinates me. I immediately realize two very big advantages: on the one hand, it creates a wonderful landscape. In addition, they can prove to be a wonderful solution to difficult zones within your own garden.
As the name itself says, the plants come from alpine zones where they are permanently exposed to direct sunshine and where the rocky soil is depleted of nutrients. They very often require specific growth conditions, which can hardly be achieved in your own garden.
Thankfully, there are many ways to artificially create the ambiance to which you are accustomed. Furthermore, they can sometimes grow better than any other species in places that are low in nutrients and dry. Under certain circumstances, you can create a landscape that takes care of itself.
Such design often represents a mixture. There, alpine and other plants are used together. There are many different mountain types available. There are low-growing perennials, dwarf pine, grass and blessings, succulents, ground vegetation and onion. By combining different textures and colors, as well as placing plants between the rocks, you could achieve a gorgeous garden design that will delight you all year round.

It is best to put different plants in small pots to make the installation as easy as possible and to improve the effect.
Made to measure facilities
If you have enough space, you can use leftover materials to create alpine gardens. This garden with alpine plants has stone slabs at its ends. Increasing the landscape makes it much easier to design and care will be much simpler.
The imposing size of the stones also serves as an effective background for the plants. One has the impression that one looks at a naturalized mountain landscape.

Make sure the pots have water drain holes. Then put a layer of rubble, stoneware, broken pieces of pots and other such stuff. So you will promote the process of fertilization and irrigation. Add some small plants that are covered with pebbles and you have done the job!
Choose the right place
As with everyone plant You need to be aware of the growth rate before choosing the right place to live. Some species that show very rapid growth should be restricted by pots or other methods so as not to disturb the other species.
