Gardening is Off to a “Rocky” Start

Landscaping Rocks West Jordan, Utah

Landscaping rocks can beautify your garden while helping to keep maintenance (and weeds) to a minimum. The Dirt Bag offers a wide variety of landscaping rocks in various colors and sizes along with free delivery. Humans have used rocks as decoration since the beginning of time, with cavemen creating pictures in them and our ancient ancestors crafting monuments like Stonehenge out of them. Stones and rocks provide endless landscaping possibilities—here are a few ideas to help get you started.

The first step is choosing the right landscaping rocks, and it’s always best to work with an expert on this. Ask yourself what you want your garden to feel like, and this will help with your decision. Do you want a warm, cozy retreat? River rocks and beach pebbles might be best for you. If you’re going for a tropical vibe, terracotta stones are a good fit. A modern look works well with Oquirrh Gravel. As you can see, there are a lot of choices!

Landscape Design Choices

One of the most popular design choices in Utah is to create a rock path that winds through your garden. This looks great if you have a lot of greenery, shrubs, or bushes. A rock sidewalk provides contrast, and you have many choices in stone from pavers to bluestone. Contrasting rocks are another great aesthetic choice, and pairing two different rocks side by side provides an interesting feature. The more different the better, so consider size, color, texture, and shape.

Of course, a water garden featuring landscaping rocks is also a popular pick. Anything from a pond to a water garden or using rocks to frame a fountain can really make your garden pop. Water is also a naturally soothing, healing element which will make your garden a favorite home retreat. You can even help out local critters by creating a water feature that’s bird and/or bee friendly.

Garden Bed Stones & Rocks

A leveled garden bed is a gorgeous addition to any yard. You can use landscaping rocks for both a design and functional purpose. The options are endless from the shape of the bed to the stones used. Why settle for a boring cedar bed when you could have a wonderland in your backyard? Other gardeners prefer to pay homage to specific location aesthetics, such as creating an Asian design that abides by feng shui or offers a zen garden. Particularly in these trying times, creating a stress-relieving garden is in high demand, and landscaping rocks can help you achieve any style or type of landscape you wish.

From tropical gardens to summer outdoor patios using landscaping rocks, there are countless ideas and options available. It can be overwhelming if you’re just starting to think about using rocks for landscaping, and experts are available to help.
