Rock and xeriscape inspiration
We love enhancing yards with paths, patios, and seating areas. Rocks can help improve shady areas, get rid of muddy spots, reduce foot traffic damage, and improve drainage.
Other ways we can use rock include extending the sides of driveways, getting rid of the pointless strip of grass between sidewalk and street, and eliminating muddy areas in side yards that get too much structural shade.
Why not grass?
Despite your best efforts (and even our professional help), some areas are just not well suited for grass.
High-traffic areas can quickly create ruts, paths, and bare spots. People and pets are hard on grass. They compact the soil and make it tough for grass to grow. Core aeration can help this compaction, but sometimes it's better to go with the flow and create a path with stones or pavers.
Shady areas are also tough on grass. You can shed a little light on the situation by opening up your canopy with tree trimming. Sometimes you might need another type of grass altogether. If that doesn't cut it, shady areas can be a great place for a patio, sitting area, or rocky groundcover.
