When you think about landscaping, your first consideration is often about all the different plants you can use throughout your garden. But rock and stone can be underrated additions to your garden that are a great way to contrast the green shrubbery and add different textures and visual interest to your garden. Rocks and stones come in all types of textures, colours, shapes, and sizes, and there are so many ways to use them in your garden. Their low maintenance and classic natural beauty make them an excellent choice for any landscaping project.
There are many uses for rocks and stone in your landscaping projects, including:
Stone pavers can be an attractive addition to your garden that is a combination of function and form. Whether it’s a path leading to your door, or a meandering path going through your garden, a designated course can help visitors enjoy your garden without trampling your precious flowers and plants. We offer a range of rock and stone options depending on whether you want a traditional paved path, a stepping stone path, or anything in between. Rock and stone is an exceptional choice for paths as they are naturally non-slip, even in wet conditions. Great for barefoot runs in the garden without having to worry about slipping and falling.
Building small walls up in your garden help to break up a more extensive garden into smaller, more manageable areas, creating more visual interest throughout your garden. You can use edging to separate your lawn from other plants, create raised garden beds, or use it as a way to break up your garden into smaller areas. Stone and rock is an excellent choice for walls or edging, as it complements the natural greenery of the garden beautifully.
If your garden is on an incline, you may want to consider using stone stairs throughout your garden. Or perhaps you have a patio or porch that you want to connect with your yard. Plant shrubs and flowers alongside your stairs to help the stairs blend in with the surrounding nature.
For a more distinctive look, add a rock garden to your landscape to act as a striking feature to your garden. Install a few large boulders in a designated spot of your garden, then surround them with closely spaced low-lying flowers. Carefully fill in the gaps with smaller stones that complement the colour of your boulders.
Sporadic rocks and stones placed throughout your garden are another easy way to incorporate stones into your garden. Since they come in so many variations, you can have whatever size, shape, colour or texture you want. For a garden, consider adding mossy rocks to complement the other plants in your yard.
