ALPINETUM – a harmonic arrangement of rocks, trees, shrubs and terrains placed on a certain surface for horticultural arrangement. The first registered alpine paths date back to 1880. in the British Isles, and later were erected in Switzerland and other European countries. In Macedonia, their raising is from a more recent date (the last decades of the 20th century). It is common to climb steep areas with a drop of 100 -400. It is most appropriate that rocks come from the proximity of the alpine tunnel location, but this is not a strict rule. When choosing, careful attention is given to the rocks being patinated, worn by time, hollow, covered with lichen and moss, without sharp edges and variable in size. Saddle material should be dwarf. The use of such compact material makes it possible to create successful compositions on small surfaces. Bl. S.
