Create a Beautiful Rock Garden

Rock gardens are very easy to take care of and make an eye catching focal point. A few larger rocks with small stones in between is a very popular way to incorporate this type of mulch in your landscaping.

Replace Your Current Organic Mulch

Replacing your old weather worn organic mulch will quickly give your landscape a beautiful makeover. Organic mulch, such as wood chips and bark, become weathered, break down over time, and usually need to be replaced once a year.  While rocks and stones are very durable and can last years without needing to be replaces.

Create a Centerpiece

Surrounding ornamental plants with stones creates visual interest. “Call attention to a favorite shrub or specimen tree by surrounding it with medium sized river stones. This creates the effect of a ‘living sculpture’,” says landscape architect Maureen Smith.

Stepping Stone Path

Whether it is on the side of your home or in the backyard, a stone path creates a picturesque scene. It is tidy look, great for keeping shoes clean and not tracking dirt into the house.
