Whether it’s for a garden path walkway, driveway, or even a rock garden, there are so many types of landscaping rock options to choose from. And, while the right landscaping stone application can add curb appeal and value to your home, you still want to be careful how much you spend.

Depending on the type of rock you choose, the costs can vary widely. If you’re in the market for rock but don’t know how much each type of rock costs, a fast and hard rule of thumb for you to consider is that the more attractive and colorful the landscaping stones, the higher the cost. Also, larger rocks are obviously going to cost more.

From AB Gravel, Pea Gravel, Decomposed Granite, and more, the choice of rock for your landscaping project can make a significant difference in how long you’ll be able to go before replacing the existing rock. These and other considerations are important when coming up with your own unique landscaping ideas for your Arizona yard.
