Landscaping With Rocks Will Spotlight Your Yard

Have you ever looked around a middle-class neighborhood and noticed that most of the lawn designs around the area look the same. Now, if you’re wondering if all these families hired the same landscaper, think again. It has become an accepted fact that beautifully manicured lawns should always comprise of well-manicured green grass, trees and flowers. If you’re individualistic and you want your garden to look unique, you should try rock gardening.

Installing landscaping rocks will give your yard the pizzazz it needs. A homeowner’s style is only visible through his garden if he can add personality to his landscape. Remove some of the grass, break up the endless sea of green and install decorative rocks!

One more reason why you should consider rock gardening is the ease of maintenance. Grass needs fertilizers and sunlight, and tend to die when the weather is too extreme. Rocks of various shapes and sizes don’t need these things. They are simply there, giving your garden the unique beauty you want without costing you.

Scout for the best rocks for landscaping in your local lawn shop. Some of the best rocks are found in nature, but if you don’t have the time to go out there in the wilderness to look for your garden rocks, you can simply buy some.

Use a shovel or a tiller to create breaks in the landscape. You need to mark the spots where you will install your rocks. Take this opportunity to assess your garden’s drainage system. The positioning of your rocks might disturb the already established water system in your yard. This is particularly true if you’re using automatic sprinklers. If, while planning your rock garden, you discover that your irrigation system is faulty, now’s the perfect time to correct that.

A walkway flanked by decorative rocks or stone statues is attractive. You can even use rocks and cement fixtures to house your lighting implements. Add a walkway so that your guests can walk around your garden comfortably without having to step on the grass. If your guests will be coming in and out of the house, the walkway will ensure that they don’t drag dirt and garden litter into the house.

Some more concepts you can use is the rock ladder, which isn’t actually a ladder but a positioning strategy for rocks of different sizes. You can position rocks according to size all along the walkway to your door. It is recommended that you refrain from fixing a rock on a permanent location. You never know when the trends will change again and you feel like revamping your yard another time.
