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.

    For Quality Landscaping Rocks Look No Further Than Art Barber Landscaping!

    There are many questions regarding the use of gravel in landscaping. One of which is does rock landscaping attract bugs? Because as a child you might have lifted a rock and witnessed a whole eco system of bugs beneath, and therefore, think that covering your lawn in rocks is going to attract these little creatures. The reality is bugs will not congregate beneath your rocks because there’s nothing for them to eat down there.

    Using Landscaping Rocks For More Than Ground Cover

    Stabilized Decomposed Granite

    Rocks For Landscaping

    Stabilized decomposed granite is simply decomposed granite that has been mixed with a stabilizing agent such as resin or polymer. When activated by spraying it with water, the stabilizing agent then binds to the decomposed granite and creates an almost impenetrable surface that stands up to heat and erosion.

    Crushed Rock & Gravel

    Rocks For Landscaping

    Many people use the terms crushed rock and gravel interchangeably. However, the reality is, they have some very distinct differences. Gravel is naturally occurring pieces of larger rocks that have been tumbled to have more rounded edges. Crushed rock is created by crushing larger rocks and screening them into similar sizes.

    Paths & Stepping Stones

    Rocks For Landscaping

    If you want to add pathways or walkways to your property, gravel is a good choice. Whether you’re adding pavers and need a solid base beneath it or stepping stones where gravel can be used as a border surrounding the perimeter, you’ll find it functional as well as aesthetically pleasing to look at.

    Choosing Rock For Your Landscaping in Wickenburg AZ
