Rocks With Meanings | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

Landscape Stones
I was walking in the park this morning and suddenly I noticed certain landscape rocks that have been there all along and never paid attention. Today, I looked at them with a different eye and suddenly remembered what one of my Japanese friends told me about landscape rocks.

Vertical Rock, also called soul rock is interspersed randomly in the landscape for harmony.

Body Rock is a tall rock is placed towards the back of the garden, being the tallest stone, it protects the garden and the home. It also represents God or your higher power.

Heart Rock is flat, almost like a stepping-stone and balances all the vertical rocks.

Branching and Reclining Rocks balance all the forms and shapes, whether they are vertical or horizontal.

Rocks To Avoid are the broken ones and the Dead Rock. This last one is a long type and if used horizontally makes a figurative dead person, that’s why it should never be used in landscaping.

Who knew rocks have a meaning and a purpose?
I think these are good suggestions to add harmony into a garden and not only for a zen garden. Create vignettes with various rock sizes, and plant flowers or food around them. Open up windows into walls or fences through which it is easy to see rocks enhancing the features of your yard, and making games of shadow at different hours of the day. Don’t forget to light them properly.
After all, if we create a garden around the home is because we want to feel closer to nature and enjoy all that nature offers. Rocks will make you feel grounded.

Do you want music in the garden? Place strategically among the natural rocks, the man-made rocks hiding speakers, they look beautiful and the music will make the garden one piece of heaven.

Let’s listen to the simple whispering beauty of rocks. Now it’s the right time to prepare the garden for the summer/winter. This is a changing season wherever you are.
Do you need a suggestion on colors and style for your garden?  I am here to help. Ciao,
Valentina
