These things are common in any garden, however using rock to add colour and definition to your landscaping is a great idea. Most rock is very inexpensive and easy to maintain. It also doesn’t require water or other types of care like living landscaping features do. The use of landscaping rock to personalize your landscaping is quite easy.

First decide where you would like to place the rock. Take into account the shape of your home and select a rock complementing your home. Any open space in the garden will be ideal for placing the rocks. You can place stone around plants, which will create a wall around them, giving a separate entity to each plant. You can separate different sections of your garden with a rock wall too, or you can use rocks for stepping stones. For stepping stones you must use flat stones to avoid the risk of accidents. Our Blue Pennant Crazy Paving is a great example of suitable stone.

If your garden has a stream or pond, adding small rocks creates the look of river banks along the sides of a river, adding a more natural look to your landscape. Do not worry about the colour of rocks not blending with your home. Once you find appropriate rocks, you can easily colour them, so that they could complement your home.

Large boulders can add distinction to your landscaping. They also make the area look wider and make great centre pieces or striking focal points. You can purchase boulders that are small enough to be put in place by a few healthy individuals or ones that are so large they require a crane to put them into place. Boulders are available in all shapes, sizes, and colours to give you a very unique look. You definitely get a good deal when you invest in natural stone. It can be used to accentuate walkways and patios or to build them.
