You could now use fake rock covers to add beauty to your fake landscape rocks or you could also use self adhesive plastic or fibreglass mesh, so there would be something for the grout to adhere to. You should mix just enough grout to cover the fake garden rocks. You should start slathering the grout outside of the fake rocks and be sure to follow the instructions of the manufacturer for tinting the grout.
When using fake rocks in your landscape you could add more effect on it by putting in proper lighting that would emphasize the beauty of the rock.
