10 Creative Ways to Use Rocks in Your Landscaping

There s something comforting and elegant about the mix of light shades in the front yard of our 2022 Whole Home in Atlanta. The gray two-tone stone of the house combined.

Keep It Light

Whether you re leveling out a yard that slopes in the back or want a new look for your flower bed, we recommend layering stones for extra dimension red flower. 

Up the Romance

Have extra space behind the pool house or next to the garage? Take a cue from this Michael Ellison project on Nantucket, and build out a sitting area with a fire pit.

Create a Conversation Pit

On top of the nice contrast mulch brings your yard and home, the landscaping favorite is beneficial for flower gardens. Mulch helps to suppress weeds and retain moisture.

Carve Out a Corner

To create an outdoor conversation area at this L.A. home, Jeremiah Brent looked to a simple landscaping idea with stones. A simple stone paver patio sheltered.

Use Complementary Colors

If your home doesn t have room for a full-on garden, make a mini one in the front rocks and mulch in a flower bed. The mulch acts as a nice base for the flowers.

Combine Rocks and Mulch

How stunning is the rock garden at the center of this driveway? In lieu of a fountain, Tyler homes gave our  Whole Home in Texas Wine Country a smattering.

Get Around

Highlight the natural beauty of your yard by surrounding a stone paver patio with a dense privacy hedge, as designer Katie Hodges did at her own Hollywood Hills home. 

Blend Into Nature

To bring whimsy and fun into your enchanted garden, use rocks and landscaping stone to build in a design. The stones can act as a walkway.

Design a Labyrinth

Make your front yard landscaping rocks pop by planting dark green plants in the flower bed. A high-contrast design like this one draws attention to your front yard.
