There are numerous reasons to incorporate landscaping rocks into your garden design. These rocks come in various shapes and sizes and can impart a unique charm to your garden. You have the flexibility to experiment with different combinations for a creative look or stick with a classic appearance.


So, what are the advantages?

  • Low Maintenance – One of the benefits of using gravel is its low maintenance requirements. It does not need frequent attention such as watering, which saves you money and helps to conserve water. Moreover, it does not require fertilizers or pesticides, which eliminates the need for harsh and potentially expensive chemicals in your yard.
  • Versatile – Gravel and landscaping rocks have a multitude of uses, such as serving as mulch around plants, or for creating patios, pathways, driveways, rockeries, decorative borders, and edging.
  • Durable – Gravel’s sturdiness and durability make it a perfect choice for withstanding severe weather conditions. As we Floridians know all too well, the weather can be unpredictable and erratic, with unexpected storms, hurricanes, and prolonged spells of scorching heat. Nevertheless, gravel is hardy and capable of enduring various weather events.
  • Stylish – Gravel can help make your property look confident, neat, and elegant. 
  • Helps Prevent Erosion – The use of gravel or small stones slows down the water flow, allowing the soil to absorb more water gradually while minimizing runoff.
