There are two kinds of rockery materials. One is natural rock material, which only uses cement as the cementation material and concrete as the foundation when stacking manually; The other is a rockery made of cement mixed mortar, steel wire mesh or GRC (low alkalinity glass fiber cement) and formed by artificial plastic turnover, also known as "plastic stone" and "plastic mountain". The advantages of plastic stone are that the shape is random and changeable, the volume can be large or small, the color can be changeable, the weight is light, and the stone and expenditure can be saved. Plastic stone works with modern flavor. Using the characteristics of large rockery buildings, the garden space is separated and divided into various spatial forms with different sizes, shapes and changes.
Through the insertion, separation, pinching, enclosure and convergence of rockeries, the flow space of mountain roads, the closed space of mountain depressions, the arch space of caves, the deep space of valleys and other distinctive spatial forms can be created in the rockery area.
Rockery can also lead tourists' line of sight or viewpoint to high or low places, creating upward and downward looking space scenes.
Garden rockery can provide more types of environment than flat terrain. In the plastic rock rockery area, the conditions of different slopes, slope directions, lighting conditions, soil properties and ventilation conditions can be found everywhere, which provides many good growth environmental conditions for a variety of plants with different ecological habits, which is conducive to improving the ecological quality and plant landscape quality of the rockery area.
When making rockeries with natural rock materials, the following kinds of stones are commonly used:
1. Lake stone
Limestone: its color is mainly cyan black, white and gray, and it is produced by the Piedmont water in Jiangsu and Zhejiang. The texture is delicate, easy to be corroded by water and carbon dioxide, and there are many wrinkles and holes on the surface, just like natural abstract patterns.
Fine sandstone: gray, white and light yellow, produced in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province. The material is hard, and it collapses due to weathering and scouring. After decomposition along the joint surface, many irregular polyhedrons are formed, with clear stone surface and sharp edges.
Limestone: it is blue grey, black grey, etc. and often mixed with white calcite stripes. It is produced in Yingde, Guangdong. Due to the melting and weathering of mountains and rivers, the surface vortices are nested and folded densely.
4. Chop stone with an axe
Sedimentary rocks: light gray, dark gray, black, earthy yellow and other colors. It is produced in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province. Filamentous, strip-shaped and flaky textures with vertical lines, also known as sword stone, have a straight and powerful appearance, but are prone to weathering and peeling.
Bamboo leaf Limestone: light grayish green, earthy red, with eye socket shaped depression, produced in Changshan and Yushan of Zhejiang, Jiangxi. The longer the shape, the better it looks. Three sides are often weathered and there are artificial knife and axe marks on the back.
6. Melaleuca stone
Sedimentary rock: iron gray with layers of light gray, naturally varied, produced in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui. There are many types and colors in sedimentary rocks.
