Rockery foot construction is the starting part of mountain construction, its main work includes bottom pulling, foot lifting and foot making. These three parts are closely related.
The so-called bottom pulling is to build a layer of rock within the range of the foot line, that is, to make a bottom layer of rock. The way to pull the bottom and the treatment of the bottom line are described below.
There are two ways to pull the bottom of rockery: full pull and peripheral pull.
1. Manladi is to lay a layer of rocks in the range of the foot line of the mountain. This method is suitable for the rockery with small scale and small area at the bottom of the mountain, or the rockery with frost heaving damage in winter in the north.
2. The surrounding bottom pulling is to first build a circle of bottom stones along the foot of the rockery with rocks, and then fill all the stone circles with stones, broken bricks or soil, and then form the bottom layer of the rockery after compaction. This method is suitable for large rockery with large base area.
Treatment of foot line
1. Barefoot: that is to say, a stone ring is directly made on the ground to make the whole rockery look like it is on the ground. This way can reduce the amount of rock and labor, but the effect of rockery will be worse.
2. Foot burying: it is to bury the rock around the bottom of the mountain into the soil for about 20 cm, so that the whole rockery looks as if it grows out of the ground. After planting flowers and plants in the rocky soil, the combination of rockery and ground will be closer and more natural.
First of all, we should pay attention to the selection of suitable rocks to make the bottom of the mountain, and should not use the over weathered loose rock
Rocks. Secondly, the bottom of the rock must be padded flat and stable to ensure that it can not be shaken, so as to build up the mountain. Third, the stones of Ladi must be closely connected with each other. Fourth, the rocks are intermittently and irregularly connected. Fifth, the edge of the bottom should be staggered, so that when the foot of the mountain bends, it has different radii, and when it is concave, it has different concave depth and width. The straight and round shape of the foot of the mountain should be avoided
