I started working on a heath/heather garden combined with dwarf conifers last year with an adjacent rockerie. It's definitely a work in progress. I have to get a landscaper to do all of the heavy work and I have trouble convincing them that they need to get me the varieties I specify. I think I will have to get the rest of my plants mail-order from a specialty nursery. Anybody into dwarf conifers? Or heaths & heathers? I probably won't really get into plantings for the rock garden until next year. When I wasn't looking the landscaper laid out the larger rocks I had ordered in a nice neat semi-circle. It's going to take a lot of work to get them arranged into something natural-looking. And I know I will need at least a few larger boulders.
