With springtime here and summer fast-approaching, outdoor party season is here. Whether you host block parties once a month or entertain your friends and family in your backyard around your pool, there are always things you can do to improve your entertaining this season. One way to up your outdoor game is to add some decorative stone to your outdoor spaces. There are numerous ways that you can upgrade your backyard with decorative rock. Keep reading to find out how you can utilize stone and rock in your garden to have the best entertaining space in your neighborhood!
Boulders and Rocks
Adding stones and decorative rocks to your outdoor space is a great way to create focus points and add texture to your lawn. Boulders can be placed to fill in empty corners or across your lawn in decorative clusters. You can even go bold with colorful rocks to line a flower bed or to line a patio area. Create creative rock borders that are straight or curvy to emphasize your style.
Crushed Rock and Gravel
One of the easiest ways to add a little bit of pizzazz to your outdoor entertaining space is to incorporate some crushed rock or gravel to your backyard. Whether you add it to a flower bed, courtyard, or side yard, crushed rock or gravel provides color and texture to an otherwise drab area. You can purchase crushed rock or gravel in a variety of colors, sizes, and textures. You can choose from smooth river rock pebbles or dramatic jagged stones.
The purpose of adding rock features to your backyard is to make a more welcoming and fun outdoor entertaining space for you and your loved ones. If you think that your patio space is too small, don’t think you need to go through all the hassle of pouring more concrete to make it bigger. Instead, you can use flat stones, pebbles, or even crushed rocks or gravel to enlarge your space. Doing this instead of pouring new cement is cheaper, faster, and more attractive.
