Landscape Rock Wickenburg

Choice of Landscape Rock

Now that fall is upon us and the days are beginning to be cooler it’s time to take a look at your yard, both front and back, and determine if it needs a little sprucing up. Maybe a new water feature would do the trick. And of course, no landscaping application here in the valley would be complete without a fresh delivery of landscape rock. The only question now is, what kind of landscaping rock should you choose.

One of our most popular gravels is the Desert Coral, its warm vibrant red colors are sure to be the ticket to compliment your new water feature. Of course, you might want to also include an area of Santa Fe Beige gravel to offset the reds and make the whole thing pop. But, rather than thinking about landscaping, why don’t you hop in the car and come on down to our gravel lot. With our wide variety of decorative gravel, you’re bound to find something to fit into your project.

Types of Landscape Rock

As mentioned, at Art Barber Excavating, we carry an extensive selection of decorative gravel, but the question is what type of rock is best for your application? When choosing decorative rock to improve your home’s curb appeal you’ll want to ensure you have the right balance of large rocks, small gravel, and decorative plants. Of course, the term “right” is highly subjective. What may be preferable for one person may seem over the top to others. So, come on down to our rock yard and take a look at what we have to offer.

    Consider these factors when selecting decorative gravel

    How Much Gravel Do You Need?

    In order to calculate how much gravel you need for your project, you’ll first need to determine the square footage of the area you’re needing to cover. With the square footage calculated all you do is multiply that by the depth of the rock you need. 1 cubic yard covers approximately 108 square feet.

    Landscape Design Considerations

    When choosing decorative gravel, there are many things to consider. Do you want to match the exterior of your home or contrast the look with various colors? Do you prefer a more formal, unified look or would you rather have a more casual-looking yard? Also smaller rocks have a lower profile which makes maintenance simpler.

    Traditional Landscaping Versus Modern

    Designing outdoor spaces with landscaping gravel such as beautiful pea gravel can be challenging but with the various colors and sizes of rocks available it can be quite invigorating. Clean brown shades of river rocks and Aztec provide a more traditional look, while crushed white marble provides a luminous modern look.

    Decomposed Granite

    Decomposed granite is one of the most commonly applied landscaping materials especially here in the desert. Its highly compatible nature also allows for drainage and is a great money-saving material as it lasts much longer than looser, larger rocks. Many customers have used decomposed granite for driveways, patios, pathways, and in large open areas of their yards.

    Asphalt Millings

    If one of your concerns when choosing landscaping gravel for your home is the impact on the environment, you may want to consider asphalt millings rather than gravel in some applications. Asphalt millings are recycled which means the cost for the material is much less since it does not need to be manufactured. Also, the upkeep compared to gravel is much less, saving time and money.

    AB Gravel

    If you’re installing a patio, concrete slab, or in the process of building a home or outbuilding, AB gravel is used as the bottom course to stabilize your project. This aggregate is made up of quarried rock, recycled asphalt, and concrete and when compacted properly will provide stable support for roadways, pathways, foundations, and other building projects.

    Desert Landscaping Ideas for Residential and Commercial Properties

    At Art Barber Excavating, we understand the unique challenges that come with landscaping in the desert regions of Wickenburg and the surrounding areas. When it comes to creating beautiful and functional outdoor spaces, homeowners and business owners in this arid climate need to carefully consider their plant selections, water usage, and overall design approach.

    One popular trend we’ve seen is the use of drought-tolerant native plants that thrive in the desert environment.  Species like agave, yucca, and prickly pear cactus not only add visual interest with their unique shapes and textures, but they also require minimal watering to survive. Incorporating these types of plants can help reduce water consumption and maintenance needs, making them an excellent choice for both residential and commercial properties.

    In addition to selecting the right plants, incorporating hardscaping elements like gravel, boulders, and decorative rocks can also be a game-changer for desert landscaping.  These materials not only add visual appeal but also help to reduce water usage by minimizing the need for traditional grass lawns. At Art Barber Excavating, we have a wide variety of landscaping rocks available in our rock yard, allowing our clients to customize the look and feel of their outdoor spaces.

    Whether you’re looking to create a modern, minimalist design or a more natural, desert-inspired aesthetic, our team can help you select the perfect materials to bring your vision to life. If you’re a business owner or homeowner in the Wickenburg area and are interested in exploring desert landscaping options, we encourage you to visit our rock yard or give us a call. Our experienced team can provide guidance on plant selection, hardscaping solutions, and overall design strategies to help you create a beautiful, low-maintenance outdoor space that thrives in the desert climate.
