Add Rocks to Your Gainesville VA Landscape

When looking for new landscaping ideas or design approaches, many homeowners in the Gainesville Virginia area often overlook the benefits of adding rocks to the mix. Rather than just trees, shrubs, flowers and hedges, rocks add dimension to your landscape design and also serve an utilitarian purpose as well.

Landscaping rocks create a visually appealing look that also is functional space. Landscaping with rocks and stones adds texture to your landscape, through creating organic pathways, borders, retaining walls and original designs.

Looking for ideas to incorporate rocks into your Gainesville, VA landscape? Here are some ideas that may help you plan your landscape to include rocks and stones:

  • Use boulders to direct attention to a particular area of your landscape. Boulders are available in many different sizes, shapes and colors and are an obvious choice for marking a driveway, path, garden or any other item of interest on your property.
  • Use flagstone, a smooth and thin rock, to create natural-looking walkways and paths through your yard. Typically, flagstone is simply installed over a layer of sand, making this a great weekend DIY project.
  • Invest in river rock for its unique and colorful finish. These rocks are easily used for stepping stones to a garden, a decorative touch for retaining walls and in some cases can even be the focal point of your flower or herb garden. River rock also has the added benefit of water conservation, so do you part for the environment and incorporate river rock into your Gainesville, VA landscape.
