Sir Hardy Amies garden in England, below. With stone this good it would be difficult to get the plantings wrong.
Stone Mountain, GA, below. Nature's stone. Teaching stone. The wildflower, front of pic, growing on the stone, Mother Nature's patience adapting a root system/foliage/flower to growing in shade with trace amounts of soil & less water.
Then there is Michael Eckerman. His ideas in stone

Thank you for introducing me to Eckerman's work! Wow!!! Love the Stone Mountain photo too. We can learn much from simple observations of the natural world...
Whoa! Michael Eckerman is crazy good! That wall has movement, the way he built it! I'm in awe.
I was just about to say what Jenny said - Michael Eckerman - WOW!!
Wow! That wall by Eckerman is mezmerizing, beautiful!
Been a long time since I visited Stone Mountain, maybe someday I'll get to go back.
I hate to pile on here but that wall by Michael Eckerman is incredible. What a fantastic example of how something inanimate, like stone, can be used to create such a sense of movement.
