In March we talked about 3 uses for gravel in landscaping, but what about working with larger weathered stone and freshly quarried rocks? Landscape stones and rocks don’t exactly fit between stepping stones or work as the primary material in a Zen garden, yet they can still offer a great deal in adding to the curb appeal of your home. They are especially great for adding texture to a plant-filled garden and for incorporating more natural elements in your garden design. Wondering how you can use landscape stones or rocks in your own landscaping projects? Read on to learn about some of the most common uses for them in landscaping.
Creating curb appeal is a great way to increase the value of your home, add beauty to your property for passers-by, and even increase overall quality of life for every time that you are entering your home. One of the best ways to do this is with skilled landscaping of the property at the front of your home, and from planting flowers to paving and edging, there is a wide variety of approaches you can take. The idea of landscaping the front of your home may sound daunting, but Asphalt Materials hosts free classes to help you get your bearings on landscaping basics. Our free classes are held on Saturday mornings as well as on Thursday and Saturday evenings.
A knowledge of how to lay pavers and how to create decorative and functional edging on your property is foundational to a knowledge in basic landscaping. Pavers are not only stylish but are also durable and can be used in a variety of ways. And while there may be a wealth of tutorials on the subject of pavers online, there truly is no substitute for learning from a professional and getting hands-on practice with pavers. That’s where free landscaping classes at Asphalt Materials come in. Our free classes are held on Saturday mornings as well as on Thursday and Saturday evenings.
