Green Tip # 382 Rock Landscaping
If you’re planning a rock garden, use local stone. Transporting stone from distant areas is a waste of energy; and local stone will look more natural in your garden. Ideally, use rocks dug from your own land or rejects from local building sites. If you do need to purchase stones make sure they haven’t been taken from an area where they’re in short supply. On a cumulative scale, such removable can damage rare habitats.
