Landscaping boulders are a versatile material that can be used for virtually any project. While many homeowners choose to place a few stones around their property to serve as focal points, there are many other unique ways to use boulders to create a stunning, dynamic, and cohesive landscape. In this week’s blog, we will explore a handful of exciting projects that allow you to incorporate landscaping boulders into your Loch Raven property.
One way to bring a sense of rustic, naturalistic charm to your outdoor spaces is to use boulders to create natural seating. Many large rocks lend themselves well to seating applications. Rather than installing wood or metal benches or chairs, consider using large stones to create places for people to gather and sit. In addition to creating a unique visual element, boulders do not need to be sanded, painted, or sealed like other seating options.
Flowerbeds, Retaining Walls, and Fencing
Wood is commonly used to create fences and other barriers in landscaping, but many of these structures can be created using boulders. You can use rocks of all sizes to build walls. Use small- to medium-sized stones to fill gaps between larger ones, and either cement them in place using mortar or leave them stacked dry. In this way, you can create low fencing, retaining walls, and raised flowerbeds. Lehnhoff’s Supply carries a variety of different stones and landscaping materials for pickup or delivery. Contact our experts to see what kinds of stones we have available for your project.
Although they are typically common in more arid climates, rock gardens can make a quirky and unusual addition to your Loch Raven property. Create a timeless landscape by nestling large boulders into the earth and inoculating them with moss. Carefully consider the faces and positioning of each boulder and place them either in groups or alone for your desired visual effect. Rock gardens benefit from careful planning, so sketch out your design ahead of time or use garbage bags filled with paper or leaves as stand-ins for your new boulders. Once you have a design figured out, give the experts at Lehnhoff’s Supply a call. We can help you decide on the perfect stones for your project, and we’ll deliver them, too!
