Just what is a roclt garden? One definition I like is "A mountain side, in flower, in A rock garden musl blend in with the landscape and look as it it were a naUirfa. occurrence. It should never be laid out on straight or regular lines. In the foothills where natural outcrop-pings occur it is much easier to construct a rock garden. If you have a iar slope and some boulders on your property this certainly offers the most is the creation your imagination produces. It is uetlor lo have one kind nf rock, nothing too regular in shape and certainly not rounded river rocks. If you can find something porous such as limestone or sandstone, much the belter, as these make a more congenial home for the roots of the plants, than non-porous ones. Shale may be used for retaining walls and is also pood in the rock garden itself. Too many kinds of rocks, especially those of bright colors or freakish shapes look very much out of place and are even distracting. I saw one once where round boulders from the river where used and these were painted bright red and hlue. It looked most unattractive, to say the least. mixture previously mentioned. If leaf mold is oblain-ahle, some may be added to the mixture to supplement or replace part of the peat moss. Another mixture is 3 parts good loam, J part peat moss, 2 parts coarse sajid and 2 parts coarse gravel. Tliis is fairly close lo the natural soil in which most o[ the alpmes grow. The rocks should be built into the slope with the soil mixture, not just laid on the surface and are better if more than half covered. In natural mountainous meadows, the rocks were there first and the soil drifted down over these. If possible, go out into the country and study a variety of situations in nature where rocks are the principal elements of the landscape. Place the rocks in that groan and squeak may be ready lo give out but that's no reason for tossing them away. Like anything else, catching the problem right away keeps it from being a serious problem. You're ahead if you lalie the trouble lo disassemble the chair and reglue all the pieces. Most people make the mistake of trying to repair a chair wilh nails or screws. Not only is the result unsightly but you have set up a situation where the repaired joint may crack. Remove the loose rung and clean off all the old glue, using sandpaper to get it all off. The hole in the leg must be cleaned out also. A round tile or a knife can be used to scrape out You also can make the fit tight by thickening the gluo with a little sawdust. Do this if the rung is still loose. Spread glue on both rungs and the inner surface of the hole in the leg. Force the rung into place. Wipe off the excess glue that oozes out. Clamp or tie as tight as you can with rope or strong twine. A scat frame that comes loose can be reinforced wilh metal corner braces or wood blocks. Just crew in place. Blocks are neater. Just cut a triangular piece of wood and fasten in the corners with screws and wood glue. Chairs that seem to Iw loose all over should be taken completely apart and reassembled. ural site to start.
