Making hollow rocks has lots of advantages for the makers of artificial rock however some areas of hollow framed rock structure requires a high level of qualified construction expertise. Most hollow rock is made over wire or rebar frames which you will find samples of here. A low growing African Daisy wraps itself around the edge of this handmade garden boulder. The boulder is actually hollow built over a wire frame packed with recycled foam.

With our "How to Make Artificial Landscape Rock over Wire Frames DVD "
you will be able to make the Hollow Rock you see in our images.

Description: This title details the construction of hollow, framed Artificial Rock using a combination of Galvanized Fencing Wire, layering fabrics and a two layered mortaring (sand and cement) system. Rock making can be used for all types of Artificial Rock applications. Generally Hollow Rock making does require more of your time to complete a rock than the Solid Rock technique.

If you were to use both techniques to build similar size rocks than this would become very evident. However with the Hollow Rock technique you can do things that would be difficult with the Solid Rock technique. In summary, both techniques have enormous potential for the home landscaper-gardener or professional.
