Getting To Work On Your Landscaping Project
Once you settle on landscaping rock as your material, and you’ve decided what sizes, types, and colors of gravel pair best with your project, the next thing to do is have your gravel delivered and get to work. And, getting to work means preparing your ground prior to applying your gravel to it. If you’re planning on simply dumping rock on your front lawn and spreading it around, you may be in for a rude awakening once monsoon season hits.
If you’re going to install a gravel pathway or a dry creek bed, you’ll need to excavate some dirt. We suggest that a gravel path be excavated to a depth of 4 inches, but the depth of a dry creek bed is entirely up to you. Some homeowners create an illusion of a dry creek bed and do not excavate the soil at all. While others create deep, functional beds that allow water to move away from their home during a rainstorm.
With so many options to choose from with landscaping ideas, you may begin to feel overwhelmed and therefore decide to forgo the project entirely. We suggest that you allow us to help you figure out what rocks and designs might work best for you. Then you’ll have more information and won’t feel so overwhelmed.
