Stone Art Ideas
Stick and Stones
Use bundles of branches or sticks to create a garden post, then top with decorative stones or rocks from your garden. Love this!
A gabion is a box or container made of wire mesh or fencing, and filled with a material for stability. In this case, wire mesh is used to create a tall box, filled with rocks or stones, then used as a decorative column. You can create tables, benches, even retaining walls with this method. Its a trendy and modern way to re-purpose in the garden, and its so creative!
Use rocks, stones and your favorite plants to create spiral garden art.
Create a Stone Art Mural
Got an ugly fence or wall that could use an artistic touch? Use rocks and stones and a construction adhesive from the home improvement store to create simple murals. This community garden has it right!
