Flowers, grass, shrubs, and mulch are all great options when it comes to creating the landscape design for your yard. However, these additions typically require maintenance that uses up valuable time and resources. The solution? Landscaping rock! Landscaping rock is a great, low-maintenance alternative for those looking to make a big statement in the look of their lawn. The only problem when it comes to landscaping rock is deciphering which type is right for your project. Luckily, our garden design experts are here to share the ins and outs of some of the most popular landscaping rock options.
A highly favored landscaping rock option that is unique to Florida is the Seminole Chip. Seminole Chip, with its natural reddish-brown hue, brings a pop of color and cohesiveness to any project. This rock is so well liked by Florida homeowners because of its moisture retention and weed suppressing properties. Plus! Seminole Chip does not need to be replaced often and does not negatively react with water. Coupled with green foliage, this rock provides an elegant contrast!
Looking to add a sophisticated touch to your lawn? Then white marble may be the right rock for you! Other than its vibrant aesthetic, white marble is also known for its durability. Marble is often used in kitchen counters because it can withstand constant impact, friction, and heat without becoming cracked or damaged. However, when exposed to iron-rich water, white marble can become discolored from rust.
If marble is out of your budget, an affordable option to consider is pea gravel. These pea size rocks have a smooth finish that makes them appealing to both the site and touch. Due to its visual and tactile benefits, pea rock is great for areas with a lot of foot traffic such as walkways, playgrounds, and patios. Another benefit to pea rock is that it comes in a variety of shades and colors to match any desired look for your project.
