Why Boulders For Landscaping?
With the various elements available for use in your hardscaping many people ask why would someone consider using boulders? The short answer is that, depending on the type and size of boulders you choose, they can really add prominence to your landscaping and set the entire project on the right path to creating an area you’ll love to enjoy every day. As a centerpiece, a large boulder can add beauty to any landscape and allow you to make efficient use of the space. Since these large rocks require almost no maintenance you can set it and forget it. If you’re looking to create an indigenous look for your flowerbeds consider scattering smaller rocks 10 inches and larger into your decomposed granite ground cover.
If you’re looking to create a border for your flowerbeds you can get as creative as you like with rocks of various sizes. Large stones such as boulders incorporated with flag rock can be used to create waterfalls, koi ponds, and even stepping stones to another area of your landscaping. One thing to consider when planning out your landscaping project is adding the perception of depth. Regardless of if you’re planning on planting real grass for ground cover or you’re using decorative rock, separating one area of your yard from another using large and varied shaped rocks is a good way to create the perception of depth.
