Looking At Rocks For Landscaping?
If you’re trying to decide between planting grass seeds, installing astroturf, or using rock for landscaping, allow us to offer a little advice. Grass is costly. It takes time to mow it, keep it watered, and the hot Arizona sun might just burn it off the face of the Earth.
Astroturf, or any other brand name of fake grass, is just that, fake. And in our humble opinion, it feels like you’re walking on a golf course or a movie set. In short, astroturf is sanitized and impersonal and doesn’t provide you with the comfortable feel that your home should represent.
On the other hand, rock for landscaping is a random product of nature and is hardly any work at all. Natural stone is considered a very durable material as it’s resistant to erosion, weathering, decay, and it’s impervious to the effects of the sun.
And here’s the thing, just because the majority of your yard is filled with various colors, sizes, and configurations of rock doesn’t mean that you can’t also add beautiful plants into the mix. Yes, hardy desert plants go great and make your rock designs really pop in the hot Arizona sun.
