At present, rockery is mainly divided into plastic rock rockery and real stone rockery. The real stone rockery, also known as garden rockery, is a kind of rockery made of natural stones. The stones used include: Yellowstone, thousand layer stone, tortoise grain stone, Taihu stone, Lingbi stone, etc. the real stone rockery has a history of more than 2000 years. Plastic rockery is an artificial rockery made of modern materials, including cement rockery, FRP rockery, foam rockery, etc.
The real stone rockery is usually made by stacking many small pieces of rock materials, which have natural mountain shape. There are two types of stacking stones: one is the imitation of human images, which focuses on the transmission of spirit; the other is the imitation of natural mountain, which concentrates the famous mountains in the garden and forest, focusing on momentum. The real stone rockery mainly pays attention to the implication, and the scope of comparison is very large. The shape and texture of the rockery are similar to the natural mountains and rivers. The real stone rockery gives people the feeling of "rockery", and the feeling of plastic rock rockery is more like "real mountain".
Plastic rock rockery can imitate the rockery built by natural stone. On the basis of imitating specific stone, further imitating the stacking technology of real stone rockery is called plastic stone sketch in the industry.
Stone rockery can also imitate famous stones and mountains in nature. The production process of real stone rockery is to build mountains by stacking stones. The production process of plastic rock rockery is similar to sculpture technology. On the basis of reference drawings and design drawings, there are many types of imitation and materials of plastic rock rockery through sculpture technology. Compared with the real stone rockery, it has the following advantages:
1、 Not subject to the shape control, the plastic rock rockery can produce various volumes of "real mountain" according to the demand, ranging from 80 meters of mountain peak to 0.5 cm small stone pieces. Due to the influence of production technology and stone materials, the real rock rockery can not be made too large.
2、 It is not affected by the environment. The interior of plastic rock rockery can be hollow structure, and the overall quality is relatively light. The stone used in the real rock rockery is heavy, and the overall weight of the rockery is heavy, which is not suitable for the environment with small bearing capacity, and has higher requirements for the foundation. It can not be used in many environments. The plastic rock rockery is not affected by the environment and is shaped at will.
