Decorative Gravel For Landscaping

Creating Curb Appeal

When wanting to improve your home’s curb appeal, the right balance of landscaping rock, plants, pathways, and water features can create a yard that is low maintenance and visually stunning.

In the desert, hardscaping is predominant, which is simply using rock, pavers or other man-made features in your landscaping as opposed to relying solely on vegetation to cover your property. Also, cactus and other succulents, which require little water can add texture and a little color to your yard’s appearance.

With the variety of colors of landscaping rock we offer, you can give your front yard depth as well as keeping it low maintenance. From Apache rock, Desert Coral rock, to decomposed and crushed granite, Art Barber Excavating has the right landscaping rock for your front yard design.

Backyard Enhancements

Do you have a large open area in your backyard that has grass that requires watering? Maybe you have a few plants that you’re tired of struggling with to keep alive. There are many options to choose from if you would rather not pay those higher water bills, or deal with dead or dying plants.

Regardless of if the cost of watering is your concern or not, sometimes replacing your grass with rock and other hardier landscaping plants can give your backyard the solace and comfort that a plain yard of grass and dying plants just cannot.

When working with a small backyard, you might want to focus on creating designated areas rather than simply having a large open space. The use of water features, boulders, and hardy plants that line a decorative rock pathway to that designated place can not only provide you with a more comforting space but will also increase the value of your home.

Decorative Gravel Benefits

At Art Barber Excavating, we understand that rocks play only a part in your landscape design. But, we believe that rock plays an important part. Not only does it come in various colors and sizes, which make it desirable for mixing and contrasting, but it is non-perishable as it will not die or blow away with the wind.

When used as a ground cover, rock aids in the stabilization of your soil moisture level by slowing the evaporation of water. Besides that, rock also absorbs heat during the day and slowly releases it during the evening hours, providing you with warmth when the temperatures begin to drop.

While some believe that living in the desert does limit your landscaping options, when you look at the glass as half full, with the proper use of decorative gravel and other landscaping materials, there are literally thousands of options available in the desert.

Landscaping Rock Options

If you drive around the Phoenix area you will notice that many of the yards use crushed rock as ground cover. This is because rock lawns cost less to maintain than lawns with grass or other water-hungry larger plants. But crushed rock can be used as more than just a cost-saving tool.

When arranged properly and interspersed with larger flat stones, crushed rock can create a pathway that separates other components of your landscaping. You can also incorporate crushed rock and other decorative gravel with various sizes of river rock to create a stunning dry creek bed otherwise known as a faux riverbed. These dry stream beds help decrease erosion and are also useful for rerouting water away from your house when the inevitable monsoon seasons occur.

Of course, crushed rock and decomposed granite are also used for driveways. At Art Barber Excavating, we don’t want you to feel limited when choosing decorative gravel for your landscaping needs. So, if you need any help deciding what colors and sizes go well together, we’ve got more than 40 years of experience helping residential and commercial clients achieve their landscaping goals.

Santa Fe Beige

A decorative rock with its warm, beige tones and smooth, rounded texture, offers an excellent landscaping solution for your home or business. The rock’s natural beige color harmonizes with the sandy hues of the desert, creating a seamless and organic aesthetic. Its size, typically ranging from small pebbles to medium-sized stones, allows for versatile use in various landscaping designs. These rocks can be strategically placed along pathways, creating a rustic yet elegant walkway that complements the arid surroundings. They also serve as a beautiful contrast when used around cacti and succulent gardens, highlighting the vibrant greens and unique shapes of these desert plants.

The Magic of Decorative Rock in the Arid Landscapes of Arizona

Desert LandscapingDecorative landscaping rock isn’t just a mere addition to an outdoor space; it’s a marriage of natural aesthetics and function. In the sun-drenched deserts of Arizona, where water is a precious resource, and the climate dictates a unique set of landscaping challenges, decorative rock emerges as an attractive and environmentally conscious solution.

Why Decorative Rock is Ideal for Arizona’s Desert Landscape:

  • Low Maintenance: Unlike plants that require regular watering, pruning, and upkeep, decorative rocks are virtually maintenance-free. They don’t need water, which is especially important in the drought-prone regions of Arizona.
  • Temperature Resilience: Rocks don’t wilt under the scorching sun! They can handle the heat, providing a lasting decorative option that remains unaffected by Arizona’s extreme temperatures.
  • Water Conservation: By replacing grassy areas or high-water-usage plants with decorative rocks, homeowners and businesses can reduce their water usage—making a positive impact on the environment and potentially reducing utility bills.
  • Erosion Control: In areas prone to wind and water erosion, decorative rocks can act as a protective barrier, keeping the soil in place and preventing loss of topsoil.

Applications in Residential and Commercial Settings:

  • Residential: From pathways, patios, and rock gardens to pool surrounds, decorative rock can transform a home’s exterior into a desert oasis. Whether it’s a Zen-inspired design or a Southwestern motif, the diverse range of rocks at Art Barber Excavating lets homeowners express their personal style.
  • Commercial: Businesses can benefit from the professional and polished look that decorative rocks offer. Whether a rock pathway leading to a business entrance or a serene rock garden for a communal outdoor space, decorative rock is versatile enough to elevate any commercial landscape.
