While there are many different ways to keep your garden looking fresh and kept throughout the colder months of autumn and winter, few ways prove to be as continuously beneficial in the spring and summer as rock landscaping will. Rock landscaping, also known as “rockscaping” is a method of interspersing rocks of varying sizes, shapes and types into an existing landscape bed in order to add depth, contrasts and inanimate elements that don’t need to be tended to like their living, breathing green counterparts. When arranged correctly, rockscaping provides a tasteful, low-maintenance landscape option that still looks aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.
And fortunately, Colorado’s sprawling terrain has plenty of stone formations to choose from. But the key to creating a successful rock landscape is to intersperse the correct foliage around strategically. After all, a landscape with no greenery wouldn’t really be much of a landscape at all. Phase One Landscapes suggest that grasses and hearty location-specific annuals be planted in groupings centrally to your front and back yard when aiming for a tailored and sophisticated rock landscape.
