Landscaping rocks and stones are an easy, low maintenance way to bring texture and interest to your yard and garden. They also can be incorporated into patios or walkways instead of pavers for a less formal effect.
Rock or rock pavers aren’t just for dry or desert landscapes. They can be a great option for anyone looking to give their garden a polished look without also adding more work or weeding maintenance.
Rock can be used to quickly improve your landscape and is a durable, long-lasting accent. With several colors, sizes, shapes, and textures to choose from, there is a huge variety when it comes to selecting the right rock for your space.
Rock gardens, walkways, or patios areas can all benefit from the addition of decorative or functional rock.
Benefits of adding landscaping rock
In addition to adding texture and interest to a yard design, landscaping rock has other benefits that make it a good choice for homeowners. As the summer gets hotter and dryer, landscaping rock will prevent water from evaporating as quickly, reducing watering costs for plants.
Landscaping rock also creates a clear border between your lawn and garden beds. Rocks keep grass back from buildings and gardens, making it easier to mow and weed.
