Building a stone flower bed is quite simple, as long as you have a few free hours and the necessary tools that we are going to describe.
Among the tools and materials needed to build a solid stone flower bed, we must have a meter, a rope and a dozen so-called stakes (sturdy sticks will also do). These will be of fundamental importance when tracing the perimeter within which we are going to place our stone flowerbed. Then, get yourself a pickaxe (a spade or shovel will also be fine, depending on your familiarity with these tools and the resistance of the soil. ) which will be used to dig deep the hole that we will need shortly after. Also get some bags of gravel, which will be indispensable when you have to create the base for the row of stones or the low wall that you are going to build.Of course, you must not forget the fundamental material for the construction of a stone flowerbed: of course, the stones .
After tracing the perimeter of the flower bed, you will proceed by digging a hole to a depth of about ten centimeters. Fill the hole with a layer of gravel.
Arrange the stones starting from the larger ones by describing the perimeter of the flower bed with a first layer. Arrange the second layer by placing the stones in a staggered way compared to the previous ones. Proceed thus arranging them asymmetrically for the rest of the perimeter. In this way, your stone flowerbed will be much more stable over time.You will notice that between one stone and the other there will be empty spaces. You will fill in the empty spaces with smaller stones. Now the space inside the flower bed you have built can be arranged to house the soil that will be used by the plants to grow. Dig and fertilize, and proceed with sowing.The choice of plants and their location for decorative purposes will naturally depend on your particular needs and tastes.
