A rock that has been in a garden for decades has
been slowly buried by dirt, mulch and plants.
These type of large rocks add character to the garden.
If you just drop a rock on your yard, it will look like
a rock monster pooped there.
Dig a hole and bury at least 20% of the rock.
Then bury the rock with dirt and later mulch & plants.
Now, you have a planted rock.
