Landscaping and Lawn Maintenance
Decorative ground cover rocks and decorative gravel is a great natural stone product that can be used for such projects as covering large areas of your landscape with the beauty of rock or adding a bit of natural stone to your planted areas. These natural stone ground cover products are the perfect addition to any landscape project.
Mulch is any type of material that is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool and make the garden bed look more attractive. Organic mulches also help improve the soil’s fertility, as they decompose. Attractive mulch installation can be used to give your yard a finished and professional look. Bed edging and edging around trees and shrubs can be used to accentuate an already attractive yard.
A patio is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation that adjoins a residence and is typically paved. A patio can be created with many materials, but it’s hard to beat one made from pavers for ease of installation and low maintenance. The initial cost may be higher than other options, but you’ll save in the long run by not having to stain or seal it continuously. Plus, repairs are easier, one paver at a time.
A retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of soil when there is a desired change in ground elevation that exceeds the angle of repose of the soil.
Sure, retaining walls look like simple stacked stone, block, or timber. But in fact, they’re carefully engineered systems that wage an ongoing battle with gravity. They restrain tons of saturated soil that would otherwise slump and slide away from a foundation or damage the surrounding landscape. These handsome barriers also make inviting spots to sit and can increase usable yard space by terracing sloped properties, something that is increasingly important as flat home sites become ever more scarce in many regions.
