Creating terraces expands the horizontal extent of your space. Visualizing the space, planning the design and choosing plants and stones that harmonize your outdoor areas with the architecture and geography create a garden that’s uniquely yours.
Ponds and Flowing Water
Water gives a sense of serenity to your garden. Even in a small yard, pools enhance the look and feel of the space. River pebbles, slabs of flagstone or boulders are a few types of rocks that you can use to form a pool or waterfall in your garden. If you have space, a channel of flowing water lined with garden rocks creates a sense of tranquility.
Walkways connect spaces within the garden and around your home. A rock path can lead you to clusters of flowers, a secluded shady spot or your garage.
