It’s a good time to add rocks to your landscape. They add a natural finishing touch to the yard. Plus, gravel has benefits beyond decoration.
While mulch inexpensively helps control weeds and manages soil temperature and moisture, it has to be replaced each year because it decomposes and fades.
Landscape rock has higher up-front costs but is a long-term solution requiring little annual maintenance. Two-inch and larger sizes stay in place and won’t get pushed around by your leaf blower.
House of Rocks, 1725 Merriam Lane in Kansas City, Kansas, has a showroom and can answer questions about type, quantity, maintenance, and delivery.
I plan to add landscape rock along our driveway and the walkway to the patio. I’m considering Mexican beach pebbles because of their round shape, smooth-textured surface, and black-and-gray colors.
I’m looking forward to seeing the results!
