Three Ideas for Using Landscape Boulders

Three Ideas for Using Landscape Boulders

by cuttingadmin, January 4, 2021

Landscape boulders are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors. The most popular type of boulder for Arizona landscapes is surface select. These boulders can be strategically placed in various landscaping designs to draw the eye and add natural color and texture to your front or backyard. They can also be installed in landscape curbing to increase your home’s curb appeal.

Here are just three ideas for using landscape boulders.

Rock Garden

A rock garden features carefully arranged landscape rocks, boulders, and drought-tolerant plants. Also known as Zen gardens, you can add sand to the area, creating serenity. The Arizona Municipal Water Users Association’s (AMWUA) website offers a list of sustainable, drought-tolerant plant varieties suitable for the Arizona desert. These plants can be used when designing a rock garden or desert landscaping.

Water Features

Water features such as ponds, waterfalls, or pools can add the element of sound to your landscaping design. The gentle sounds of water moving within these waterscapes create a sense of tranquility that is naturally relaxing. The natural colors of landscape boulders can complement these features and, as such, are commonly used to develop sprawling waterfalls and pool grottos.

Desert Landscaping

Landscape boulders, rocks, and drought-tolerant plants are three essential requirements for creating a desert landscape. Because these products require minimal water, you help the environment by installing them in your front or backyard. A desert landscape can also incorporate rock gardens and water features.
