3 Ways to Rock Your Landscape in Coeur d'Alene

Rocks come in many shapes and sizes, and bringing them into your landscape can add much-needed visual interest and functionality.

Mulch Replacement

River rock is an excellent ground covering alternative. It is durable, drains well, and, unlike mulch, does not have to be replaced each year. Using small rocks in your garden beds and around your yard is a great sustainable option for landscaping.

Natural Border

Larger rocks and boulders add visual appeal around gardens and pools. Use larger stones to elegantly frame a garden bed or draw attention to your favorite flower. Make your stunning backyard pool appear natural by surrounding it with large boulders and greenery. While this task is best accomplished with an experienced landscape architect by your side, it would undoubtedly be worth every penny.

Visual Decor

Bringing in a large boulder, especially one with a unique shape or curve, is a fantastic option for a focal point in a yard. In one of our projects, our team used a massive boulder water feature to draw attention past the client's pool to the rest of the yard.
