Decorative Rock and Cobble Installation
When looking to improve your landscape the first thing you might be inclined to add is plants or mulch. However, you might find it surprising that rock and gravel can add color and texture to your design, resulting in a year-round good-looking and functional hardscape. Best of all, rock and gravel are pretty low maintenance!
Here is a list of some of our favorites to consider for your landscape.
Decomposed granite is usually reddish-tan and sandy, and provides landscapes with a soft, rustic look. This affordable option is often used around trees, garden trails and as a xeriscape ground cover.
Pea gravel is–you guessed it–the size of a pea, usually ¼ inch to 1/8 inch in size. Colors range from white to tan to brown. Pea gravel is very versatile, often used to cover driveways and fill spaces between stone pavers. It also serves as a good weed barrier and won’t decompose like mulch.
Crushed Granite Gravel:
This gravel has larger particles than decomposed granite and provides a nice, natural look for your yard. It makes a good transition between garden plants and pathways.
Composed of actual lava from volcanoes, this rock boasts bold colors, providing a pretty accent to any landscape design. It is ideal for drier climates, absorbing heat during the day and releasing it throughout the night. Lava rock is very lightweight that makes it easy to transport and spread.
