The Benefits of Having a Rock Garden
A rock garden can be a wonderful addition to your property.

The question of landscape design is one that has many possible solutions. From plants and trees to flowers and theme, the possibilities are almost endless with how you can achieve your dream look on your property. But, as you’re designing your space consider the unique atmosphere and options that having a rock garden will bring to your yard. While the look will be different from the usual flower-based garden, the benefits of having rocks and other kinds of stone take their place are numerous. Team up with your professional landscape designer to design the perfect space. 

Low Maintenance

Aside from occasionally pulling weeds, rock gardens are very low maintenance. They can withstand harsh weather and retain their polished look throughout the seasons. A lack of rain, too much sun, or too little sun won’t have much of an  impact on the life and look of your rock garden. If you do include other plants, they’ll probably require your attention, but the number and type will be completely up to you. Also,  if you ever decide that you want to change certain aspects of the design, it’s as simple as relocating or repositioning the stones and rocks to fit your current mood.   

Cover Problem Areas

If you’ve found that there are a few trouble spots in your yard where you seem to find it difficult to sustain a flower-based garden, then a rock garden would be the perfect solution. If there’s too much shade in that area, or the ground is uneven and just not suitable for lawn growth, cover it with a rock garden. It will mask the issue with a beautifully-designed space and become a focal point in your yard.  

Increase Value

Another great benefit of adding a rock garden to your landscape is increasing your home’s appeal and value. Features that are big draws for potential buyers are spaces and items that make the home unique. Adding water features or a seating area to your rock garden, or even a path to another section of your yard or area of your home will stop buyers in their tracks. They may also be attracted to its low-maintenance qualities.
