With the development of technology and the change of people's aesthetic concept, rockery landscape began to change greatly, resulting in the separation of modern rockery and ancient rockery.
With the development of modern rockery technology, large scale rockery can be easily made, which is unimaginable in ancient times. They differ in that:
1. The modern rockery is true and false, while the ancient rockery is false and true. Modern rockery uses GRC and other advanced technologies, and great changes have taken place in the material. The material of modern rockery is no longer stone, it may be cement, it may be hard plastic, and there are more possibilities. The ancient rockery is a real stone, which is taken from the nature. It is expensive and inconvenient to transport. In contrast, modern rockery materials are lighter and need not destroy the landform easily, and the real stones used in ancient rockery are more grounded.
2. Modern rockery landscaping is mostly used to imitate famous mountains, while ancient rockery landscaping is mostly self-developed, self stacked and imaginative. When CAD design and other means can be used to design rockery, it is also a time when rockery landscaping techniques are declining. At this time, many scenic spots purely imitate the famous mountains of nature, so that they lose their subjective initiative. Shenzhen happy valley, Hong Kong Disneyland grizzly Valley and so on, there are a large number of parks in this way. Although the ancient stone landscape from nature, stacking is unique, there are many ancient rockery stacking masters, but almost no modern. On the contrary, the progress of scientific and technological means has reduced people's creativity.
3. Modern rockery construction is easier and more convenient than ancient construction. Ancient construction requires huge manpower, so modern construction is easier to refer to the design drawings, while ancient construction can only be carried out according to the overall idea.
4. Modern rockery production can pay more attention to details. It can not only stack more shapes of mountains, but also control every detail and specific color. However, in ancient times, it is difficult to achieve the goal of surface to surface. The only way to use rockery lies in one heart.
