“Jonathan spent time with me reviewing the project off my back patio. He walked me through the various options and then stepped away giving me time to determine what I wanted. Then he allowed me to pick the specific stones I wanted. Amazing customer service! I will be back here for the next project.”
Valerie Dennison, Nashville TN
Have you set your sights on landscaping your yard? Landscaping your front or back yard is an adventure in creativity and design that is sure to be fun for you.
There are many elements to landscaping, one of the most important being the design of the landscape. How will the finished yard look? Where will the shrubs, flowerbeds, and other parts go? Will you have a fountain, or maybe a retaining wall? What is it going to look like?
Chances are you already have an idea of what you want your yard to look like. If not, you’ve probably hired a contractor who can help you with the layout. Whichever way you’ve decided to go, have you thought about using stone as a part of your landscape appeal?
You probably have, who doesn’t? Stone is one of the most popular choices to decorate a landscape and it is also a great way to both physically and visually separate other elements in your yard such as flowerbeds or tree areas.
When you go to design your landscape, consider using landscape stone as both a separating device and a beautifying element. Stone dealers have many options for the ambitious landscaper, from boulders to stack stone for retaining walls. If you want to add a sturdy yet beautiful aspect to your yard, keep reading.
Types of Landscaping Stone
Most stone dealers offer a plethora of options for the landscaper. Not only can stone dealers such as The Rock Place (we’re just outside of Nashville, Tennessee), offer many types and cuts of stone, but they also carry different kinds of gravel and mulch to help with the landscape process. Let’s take a look at what we can provide to help you with your project.
Boulders are a fun way to liven up a landscape. They can be simply decorative additions, or they can double as functional pieces. The Rock Place carries several different kinds of boulders, including fieldstone, garden, and boulders from the Pigeon River in East Tennessee. You can place boulders in a pattern to make a flower bed look artistic, or you can use boulders to construct a low stone wall to surround a portion of your garden or landscape, such as a flowerbed or tree.
Flagstone is a flat stone that is often used to create pathways and outdoor flooring. You can add a garden path by spacing out individual flagstones, or you can push them together in a tightly designed pattern for a solid path. You can use flagstone in many ways beyond this, such as paving for a patio. Flagstone can also be stacked and used to build a low stone wall known as a retaining wall to surround a flowerbed, pond, or as edging for earth that is designed to stagger like stair steps (such as in the terrace farming technique).
Gravel is always a necessary part of landscaping. If you are adding a Japanese garden to your home, for example, you must install large amount of gravel to achieve the water-like appearance belonging to Zen and Japanese gardens. Gravel is also useful in landscaping as a barrier between flowerbeds, or in the creation of multiple pathways. At The Rock Place, you can find gravel made of stones from the Pigeon River, black and red lava rock, white marble, limestone, and other kinds of rocks. We offer a wide selection of colors.
These are just a few of the landscaping stone products we carry that can assist in the look and feel of your project.
