A rock garden is a beautiful addition to a front lawn, particularly in dry regions where many plants may struggle. Choose rocks that look as if they are part of a natural, rocky landscape and will complement the vegetation. For example, if creating a woodland rock garden, use mossy rocks and boulders of gray in assorted sizes along with low-growing wildflowers, such as ferns and trilliums. Multi-level rock gardens are particularly effective, as they draw the eye up from the ground and add visual interest.

You can get rid of early weeds anytime the ground is thawed, but you’ll want to check the Plant Hardiness USDA Zone Map to figure out your yard’s sub-climate, shop for perennials and plant accordingly. While many conditions can affect a plant’s survival, this is the easiest way to ensure your plants make it through the season.
