Landscaping with rocks
Landscaping Tips

Rock is a classic material that can be used in almost any landscape. It is elegant, and can organise what could potentially be a disorderly garden.   

Initially, do some general research on landscape designs that feature rock material. Find several designs that are similar to your outdoor space, and get inspiration from the way the rocks are used to compliment the landscape.  

To help with inspiration, Blade Landscape Design has put together a list of ways rock can be used to enhance a landscape  

1. 
As a walkway

Create a stepping stone path with a series of stone pavers that can be any shape you want. The easiest shape to buy is a square, however pavers can come in rounded or even hexagonal shapes.  

To add an element of neatness, surround the pavers will small pebbles that are a contrasting colour.  

2. 
Replacing mulch


Small rocks can be used to replace mulch. While using rocks are a slightly more expensive alternative, rock has the advantage of being more durable than traditional mulch. Mulch must be replaced every season, whereas rocks can be kept in your garden for years on end.  

3. 
Planting a rock garden


To add a tropical look to your landscape, try planting a colourful rock garden. Place several boulders in an area where there is plenty of sunlight for a strong landscape character. Additionally, plant low-lying flowers around the boulders that are a similar colour to the rocks.    

4. 
Water feature border


If your landscape includes a water feature or a pond, consider placing medium to large sized rocks around the area to soften the mood of the space. The benefit of installing a rock border against a pond is that the rocks will help camouflage unattractive black pond liners and provide a contrast to the darker colour of the pond water.  

5. 
Centrepiece item

Purchase an extra large rock to create a unique, bold statement for the center of your landscape. A large rock works perfectly for small gardens as an ornamental shrub may become too unmanageable. A large garden can also benefit from a rock centerpiece as it adds interest to plain border areas, which commonly includes hedges.
