Real rocks in the landscape present many obvious difficulties with respect to availability, handling and installation. Artificial rocks can overcome many of these limitations.
One option is to construct rocks on-site from concrete and other materials, either doing it yourself (if you have suffient know-how and artistic ability), or by engaging a professional. Another is to select from the variety of prefabricated modules available on the market.
