    Decorative Rock Types

    Gravel For Drainage

    Rock Landscaping Wickenburg

    When you’re looking for gravel intended for drainage projects, you’ll want to choose larger rocks. Smaller rocks tend to become compacted and leave plenty of room between the stones for the water to drain down. As a rule of thumb, you’ll want to look for 1/2-inch to 1-inch gravel for drainage. Of course, your gravel needs may be different.

    Flagstone Rocks

    Rock Landscaping Wickenburg

    Flagstone rock is landscaping rock that’s been quarried and sliced into flat pieces specifically for use in walkways and patios. While brick and concrete pavers also work well for these applications, the irregularity of size and colors of flagstones make break up the monotony and draw the eye, making them more appealing.

    Crushed Stone

    Landscaping Stones Crushed gravel

    Crushed stone, commonly referred to as decomposed granite, has many purposes. It can be used as an underlayment for patios, around plants, and even as ground cover for your entire lawn. Crushed stone is created by passing larger stones through a stone crusher at stone quarries and may be more costly due to this process.

    Landscaping Rock Design Accents

    Accent Landscaping refers to using various landscaping elements to draw attention to particular features or areas in your overall landscaping design. Placing larger plants that are offset by smaller plants beneath them in a semicircle that points to a water feature is one way to draw attention to the water feature. This is what accent landscaping does. Accent Landscaping allows the homeowner to create more interest in specific areas in their outdoor space. These can include accent trees, dry creek beds, boulders, walls, lighting, and other elements.

    • For example, you can create interesting effects using string lighting or lanterns to illuminate a pathway or other areas of your landscaping. You can use spotlights that light up at night to show off your boulders or provide lighting around stairways. You can do many wonderful things with lighting, including creating interesting shadows.
    • Another example of accent landscaping is to use flat boulders on a down slope in your rock yard to create a stairway that opens up to another area of your yard. This area could be flanked by plants, trees, and possibly a fence. This little getaway could be the perfect place for an arbor and a sitting area. Really the possibilities are endless with decorative rock and accent landscaping.
