Decorative rock design in your yard can range from a flagstone pathway to a zen rock garden. Whatever you choose to do, we can help, from design, to material choice, to final placement.
The Advantages of Decorative Rock Design
Rock design literally could not be more easy to maintain. If there’s one thing in the world that holds up well to weathering and wear, it’s stone. Rocks won’t need touch-ups, and the more worn they look, the more they add to your overall aesthetic.
With a variety of colors, sizes, patterns, and shapes, the options are endless for your yard. You can have large stones and boulders as features, or patterns of pebbles that line a path into the garden.
Rocks can also be an eco-friendly, efficient option for your yard. Ground cover of rocks and pebbles often function much like mulch, protecting your soil from evaporation, pests, and weeds. This minimizes the time you need to care for plants and soil in your yard. Additionally, rocks themselves don’t need watering or other maintenance (except, sometimes, some bug spray) that will use up your money, time, and resources.
Strategic stones and boulders placed throughout your yard can discourage soil erosion and weather damage for your landscaping, preventing floods, landslides, and shifting.
