Boulders can take an ordinary landscape and make it exceptional. Landscape boulders are one of the cornerstones of landscape design. Boulders are large, landscape rocks that are at least a foot across in distance. There are two basic types of large landscape boulders. The first is round surface stones. The second type is known as angular (quarried) stones. They come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes.
Landscape boulders are also a great way to amend a landscape and change its elevation. Our boulders range from sizes that a person can maneuver, to extremely large pieces that can only be moved by machine. Boulders are used for rock gardens, large rock walls, retaining walls, sculptural placement rocks, water gardens, and more! In addition to being functional they are aesthetically beautiful, maintenance-free and last forever as is.
A reason landscaping boulder features are popular is because they are natural. They are also easy on the eye. If you are a nature lover, then you're inherently a lover of beautiful landscapes. You probably enjoy creating serene and colorful spaces with boulders, plants, shrubs, flowers, stone and accent pieces. Many people with these artistic instincts find that landscaping with boulders offers a new spark to their design creativity. This is because boulders, due to their large size and interesting dimensions, make tasteful focal points in any garden or landscape setting.
Part of the creative fun with your design is choosing the placement of either a single boulder or a grouping as boulder walls. You can often draw inspiration from their various sizes, textures and colors. Tall grass and indigenous flowers make for a graceful and natural complement to solitary or grouped boulders. We suggest that the use of boulders can help breathe creativity into your landscape or garden design. Choose your boulders according to your own style, tastes and landscape designs.
One piece of advice we often give to customers when they are in our landscape supply yard trying to decide which boulders they want is, “Don’t be afraid to go big.” We often find that people viewing a boulder away from the context of their property tend to underestimate the size needed. It’s often the case that when their rock is taken home and placed they find that it looks much smaller in relation to their home and landscape. So we recommend choosing a boulder that seems to be a little too large. Then when it is set into the context of their larger landscape it is usually the right size.
We love our customers and what we do, so feel free to call anytime for assistance with your arboreal needs!
