You don’t have to be a master gardener to make the most beautiful and rewarding boulder garden.
These amazing gardens are filled with all kinds of flora and fauna.
If you’re not an artist or a sculptor, you can make these gardens yourself.
The only rule is that you need to pay attention to the plant life that you’re working with.
In this article, we’ll explain how to make your own boulder garden in your own backyard.
Cut a boulder out of a hardwood.
Lay the boulder down in the center of your backyard.
The first thing you’ll need is a piece of hardwood that will hold the entire boulder.
This is what we’re going to call the root.
Cut the piece into three pieces and then trim them into 3-foot squares.
Cut out a corner piece of the root, which you’ll use to place the roots of the other two branches.
Trim off a quarter of the hardwood, which is called the root tip.
Place the root in a container and tie it securely.
Set the pot of water in the pot, cover it with a blanket and place a towel over it.
Cover the blanket with a towel and let it soak for at least 30 minutes.
After soaking for at or longer, drain the water from the root and set it aside.
Once it’s soaked, repeat steps 2 and 3, except this time use the hard wood root tip as the top layer.
Once the water has drained off the root of the boulder, cut the root out and place it in a jar or glass vase.
Fill a glass vases with water and let them sit overnight.
Drain the water and set aside.
After about an hour, the root should be fully submerged in the water.
Remove the root from the water by pulling the root through a small opening in the lid of the vase and allowing the root to drain.
Next, dry the root by pressing it under a heavy towel.
Place a clean towel over the root with a piece or two of hard wood that you can hold on to while you dry.
Dry the towel and then place it on top of the dry towel.
You should see a fine layer of fine sand.
Remove from the dryer and dry on a clean surface.
You’ll want to leave about 1/2 to 3/4 inch of the top surface of the roots exposed.
After drying, put the roots back in the container, secure it and store it in the fridge for up to 1 week.
When you’re ready to use it, take a small piece of bark or twig, cut it into the shape of a boulder and lay it on the ground in front of the pot.
This should look like a large boulder.
If the roots are not submerged, cover the top of each of the stones with a small layer of sand.
Once this is dry, place a clean, wet towel on top and cover it as well.
Now that the sand has been thoroughly soaked, you’ll want it to dry completely before you can start making your boulders.
Place each boulder in the correct position.
When the boulders are ready, gently tap the tops of the bouldering stones to break the soil loose from the stones.
This will break up the soil, allowing you to start making the roots.
Put the stones back in their container, place the blanket over them and allow them to dry overnight.
You can then store the stones in the jar for up.
The next day, remove the blanket and let the stones dry completely.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the remaining three boulders and let each one dry for about one day.
You may want to dry them on a damp cloth in a dark room for a day or two before you use them.
Now you’re good to go!
They will last up to a week and you’ll be amazed at the beautiful effect that they’ll have on your backyard and your life.
