Landscaping your lot with yard gravel

When it comes to choosing decorative rock, otherwise referred to as yard gravel, you may have a hard time discerning which type is right for you. You could go with polished pebbles to offset some of your desert plants, or you might just want to stick with decomposed granite, which is always a popular choice.

Your landscaping options are wide open here in the desert, you could use large boulders for a focal point surrounded by rock ground cover. You could use medium-sized angular rubble stones to create a short wall with an open planter area on top. And even tier your landscaping with two or more stepped walls with plants interspersed.

If you’re looking for flagstone for a pathway or to create a patio, it comes in various thicknesses and is sold by weight. Of course, the coverage will depend on the size of the stone and how much space you want in between the stones.

When you add variety to your yard using different focal elements and treatments with various types and sizes of landscaping rock, you’re actually increasing your home’s value as it improves its curb appeal. For help determining which rocks are best for your yard, contact Art Barber Excavating. We have a rock yard with many rocks to choose from. And we deliver.

    Landscaping Ideas Where Water is Scarce.

    Hardscaping Features

    Yard Gravel Wickenburg

    When you incorporate hardscaping features like patios, pathways, and retaining walls, you give your landscaping character. Use materials like decorative gravel, concrete, stone, and pavers to help create function and beauty. These items reduce the need for water and add visual appeal to any yard.

    Drip Irrigation

    Yard Gravel Wickenburg

    When you lay down a thick layer of decomposed granite or other small ground cover rock and then install a drip irrigation system to water native plants in that area, it minimizes water waste. Rather than using sprinklers where water can evaporate quickly, this combination allows the water to remain longer.

    Drought Tolerant Plants

    When selecting plants, it’s important for you to use native plants because they require less maintenance and less water. So choose succulents and cactuses. Succulents store water in their leaves, stems, or roots and are highly resilient to dry, rainless conditions. But remember, succulents need soil that drains well.

    Things to Consider When Adding Rocks to Your Landscaping

    Lack of Beauty

    If you’re concerned that incorporating rock into your landscaping might make it appear barren and unattractive, there are ways to avoid the possibility. When done right, rocks can actually enhance the beauty of your home by adding contrast that you didn’t get from a grass-filled lawn. Also, when you choose different sizes and colors of rock and create appealing focal points, you’ll find your old lawn to be more homogenous and unappealing. Also, adding succulents and native flowering plants can help spruce up your landscaping and add improved curb appeal.

    Maintenance Needs

    When installing rock as ground cover, it’s suggested that you lay down landscape fabric first to help prevent weeds from growing through the rocks. This will reduce the need for weeding. In general, rocks require fewer hours of maintenance when you compare what’s needed to the time spent mowing, watering, trimming, and blowing. Of course, you’ll want to blow debris off your rocks regularly, and you may need to rake rocks back into their original areas after too much foot traffic. But you’ll find that rocks are much less maintenance intensive than grass.
