3. How to Use Rocks in Your Landscape Design
Create a rock path
A rock path is one of the most common rock landscaping ideas. Whether you choose stepping stones or a deconstructed gravel path, the sky’s the limit when it comes to design choices. Almost any stone can be used to border a path. Landscape suppliers will have several types. If possible, fit the stones tightly for a smooth appearance.
Build rock walls
They are very beautiful and decorative. Apart from that they act as a fence or border, or are used as a transition on a hillside, rock walls add aesthetic value to your home and may even increase your property value.
Design with river rocks
River rock landscaping is unique because the smooth, river-worn surfaces of the stones add a peaceful, unique quality to your outdoor design. While these versatile rocks can be used as borders or under stepping-stone paths.
Create contrast with white rock gardens
To dramatically emphasize your garden’s borders, add contrast, or achieve a modern look, consider white-rock landscaping. White stones make an excellent backdrop for highlighting plants and gardens.
