Incorporating Rocks Into Your Landscape

There's something beautiful about the warm colors of stone combined with the strength that it can provide in your landscape. There are many ways to incorporate stone into your backyard paradise from aesthetically appealing views or strategically placed structure. Here are a few ways we love to see your landscape enhanced by stone here at Paradise Landscaping.

Replace Mulch

Replacing mulch is not only a pretty way to enhance your landscape, but it is also a great way to save money. While it may cost more upfront to put rock in your landscape, it is something you won't have to do again. Mulch generally has to be replaced every single year, whereas rock will last as long as your landscape!

Plant a Rock Garden

Start by choosing a few large statement rocks or boulders that you love the look of. Then surround them with smaller pebbles and rocks that match or contrast in color. You can enhance this space by having special plants or vines around the area to grow around the rocks. This can be a fun space to add to your landscape, and also gives you a great way to incorporate rocks into your Lake of the Ozarks landscape.

Create a Centerpiece

Do you want to make a dramatic statement in your paradise? A large boulder or rock can be just what you're looking for. Every garden space needs something to draw attention to it and give it a purpose. By adding a large rock you are creating a focal point, and you can design the space around this focal point.

Build a Pond Border

A beautiful way to enhance your landscaping is to add a water feature. Water gardens, ponds, and fountains all create a relaxing environment and beautiful views. Of course, every water feature needs a finishing touch, and rocks create the perfect border for your water feature. When we design a water garden, we like to put rocks around it, not just to make it look beautiful, but to also cover up the unattractive plastic that is used for the garden.

Create a Low-Maintenance Container Garden

Do you want to create a space in your landscape where you can escape and enjoy the space you miss so much? A rock garden is a great way to incorporate plants, while still achieving an easy to maintain the area. You can use rocks instead of grass and plant large blooms in pots. This will create a space you can relax in, while not having to do as much maintenance. The sky is also the limit with creativity because there are so many different types of stones and rocks to use.

Make a Stepping Stone Path

Stepping stones are a great way to either guide you to a certain area of your landscape or also take advantage of a space that is too shady to grow anything. You can also use them to keep shoes clean while walking up to a back or side door of your home. You can surround the large stones with smaller pebbles for a clean and contrasting look.
