When we think of home landscapes, we tend to think green. The word landscape conjures images of trees, vibrant flower beds and lush green grass. It usually doesn’t make our minds picture boulders and gravels and shards of rock. Not all landscapes have leaves and roots, though. Some landscapes are sculpted out of dirt, hard surfaces and shattered earth.
At ABC Scapes, we have experience dealing with all kinds of landscapes. And while most of them are of the grass and trees variety, we’ve also dealt with rock landscapes too. If you’re wondering if you should hire a landscaper if you have a rock landscape, read on.
Should I Get A Landscaper If I Have A Rock Landscape?
YES. Just because your landscape is made out of rocks instead of grass doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tend it. Your landscape is your house’s first impression. It’s your curb appeal. It’s what prospective house buyers and neighbors and visitors see before they see your home. If you want your house to look nice you want your landscape to look nice too. A great landscape makes everything about your home look considered, deliberate and planned. A poor landscape reflects poorly on you and your home.
The danger with a rock landscape is that people often think they don’t need to do anything to it. Or even worse: That they CAN’T do anything with it. How much can you do with rocks, anyway? The truth is: A LOT. You can artfully arrange a rock landscape to bring out the best in your landscape. Getting a landscaper with rock landscape experience in to design your landscape could make a big difference.
Landscaping Stones & Special Features
Did you know that there is a wide array of landscaping stones that you can use to transform your front yard? That these stones have a variety of different colors and textures? Your yard doesn’t have to be a dull and mute sheet of gray or brown stones. A landscaper could truck in and install trails of bright red clay stones, sheets of shimmering black volcanic rock, or put in patches of yellow stone that catch the eye like fool’s gold drawing a prospector’s gaze.
A landscaper could give your rock landscape depth by adding special features to your landscape. Perhaps they could lay down a trail of large polished stones to lead up to the entrance of your home? Or they could create trails of pebbles that your dogs could run on? A rock landscape could look even better with the addition of a pond, or a couple of low maintenance trees that could survive in the barren rock landscape and offer sweet shade and a splash of verdant color.
