Landscape beds covered in rocks are anything but boring!

When you think of a rock covering for your landscape bed, you might automatically assume that there are not a lot of color options or creativity opportunities. Well, think again! Below are a few examples of rock types that are extremely popular among our clients:

  • Purple Trap Rock - As you can probably guess from the name, purple trap rocks are... purple! Add a little pop of color to your home and catch the eyes of your neighbors with your beautifully unique landscape beds.
  • River Rock - A river rock ground covering has a mix of more natural colors such as browns, beiges, greys, and some hues of blue.
  • Maramec - These rocks are a mix between brown, red, and beige colors. These will stick out a little more than river rocks, but a little less than purple trap rocks.
  • White Marble - Can you take a wild guess at what color these rocks might be?! White marble rocks make for a great elegant look on your landscape beds. They help colorful plants and beautiful edging features stand out.
  • Western Sunrise Rock - These rocks are full of beautiful colors, just like a western sunset! Add a mix of orange, red, pink, and a little bit of black to your landscape beds.
  • Lava Rock - Similar to the western sunrise rocks, lava rocks are a blend of some darker colors than your typical landscape bed covering. Lava rocks are usually a mix of red and black.
  • Cobbles - Jump back to the basics with some cobble rocks. These are neutral colors, mostly grey and beige.

Rock coverings offer more benefits than just appearance.

When you choose to add rocks to cover the soil in your landscape beds, you will add more than just a nice appearance.

Benefits of rock coverings:

  • They are extremely low maintenance
  • They reduce soil erosion
  • They are long-lasting
  • They won't attract bugs as some organic mulches will
