White Landscaping Rock

Butala Sand & Gravel – Salida, Colorado. Home of “Glacier White Cobbles” Glacier White landscape stones give a neat finished look to your home and property. Nature’s building material – Glacier White Granite landscape stone makes excellent retaining walls. The attractive “Glacier White” landscape stone that is our trademark product comes from natural stream channel and terrace depositions, some resulting from the catastrophic break of a glacial dam in the geologic past. The very pale granite that forms Glacier White was transported quite some distance by water and ice before finally stopping in the Heart of the Rockies. This long transport in an abrasive environment and fast-moving stream produced beautifully rounded natural stone in a clean deposit. Glacier White Cobbles are one of the whitest natural river stones available in the world. It has an attractive and distinctive appearance and is prized by landscape designers. We offer a range of sizes of this natural round granite rock, ranging from pea-gravel to car-sized centerpiece landscaping boulders.” Stones in the middles sizes (2” to 12” in diameter) generally have the most uniform white color, although some variation does become apparent up close. The smallest natural round stones such as pea-gravel tend to look a bit darker, as does the crushed stone. The largest boulders have more variation in color and rock grain pattern.

Question number one: do you like this rock or not? Sounds like you want a lawn. If so, you made a mistake – we all do. I had to redo my hellstrip about four times before I got it right; my neighbour was teasing me about it being an annual ritual. So back off, and get the solution you want right, rather than getting the solution you don’t want right. Get rid of the rock – use a rock rake (Lee Valley) or a sifting screen or whatever. Either sell it, give it away, or make a little section of the yard in white rock and leave the rest open for your lawn.

Choosing the Right Rocks for Your Landscape The rocks you choose will help set the tone for the rest of your garden. Tawny beach pebbles or river rocks add warmth, while white marble chips help brighten up shady areas. Flat terracotta stones complement a tropical landscape, but can seem out of place in a more formal garden. For a minimalist modern landscape or Polynesian-themed garden, try black lava rocks. Check out photos of rockscapes online to see what appeals to you. Because stones last indefinitely, it’s important to choose a look you’ll be happy with for many years. Replace Mulch Rocks may be more expensive than mulch, but they have several advantages as a groundcover. The first is durability. Mulch must be replaced every season, while rocks can last the lifetime of your garden. Another advantage is that pale-colored stones provide striking contrast against deep-colored foliage and help brighten up shady corners of your landscape. “Call attention to a favorite shrub or specimen tree by surrounding it with medium-sized river stones. This creates the effect of a ‘living sculpture’,” says landscape architect Maureen Smith. Rocks will also discourage weed growth around your prized plant, but for the best results, install a weed barrier before putting the stones in place. Plant a Rock Garden For a more exotic look, add a rock garden to your landscape. Choose an area that gets plenty of sun and install two or three small boulders. Surround the boulders with closely spaced low-lying flowers, such as portulaca (left), ground orchids or decorative cactus. Carefully fill in the gaps with smaller stones that complement the color of your boulders. Create a Centerpiece A large, unusually-shaped boulder can serve as an eye-catching focal point. Use as a tidy, low-maintenance centerpiece in a small garden, where an ornamental shrub might become too large or unruly. In larger gardens, a rock centerpiece can add visual interest to monotonous border areas, such as hedges. Build a Pond Border Large rocks are the key to giving your backyard pond that fairytale look. The right type of stone will help camouflage unsightly black pond liners and provide contrast to the dark pond water. Avoid using even rectangular pavers. For the most natural effect, choose rocks that are similar in size but irregular in shape and color. Create a Low-Maintenance Container Garden Instead of setting up a container garden on your deck or patio, where the pots need regular watering, place them in a rockscape that’s within reach of your sprinkler system. Line the area with a weed barrier and set the containers on top. Cut holes in the barrier, so the bottoms of the pots can fit through and settle into the soil. Make sure the pots have adequate holes for drainage. Surround the pots with small stones in a complementary color. The result is a striking container garden that gets watered whenever your sprinklers come on. Make a Stepping Stone Path A stepping stone path is a picturesque option for those shady areas alongside your house, where there is too little sun for most plants to thrive. It’s also a practical way to keep shoes clean when walking up to a side door or back door. For a tidy look, surround large stepping stones with small pebbles in a contrasting color.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo timscott Get a little more rock in a slightly darker color and mix em up, that may dull the glare. The landscaper that did my yard didn’t use any fabric and I don’t get many weeds at all. If you are getting dirt through your rock it may not be deep enough. Roundup will keep any stray weeds at bay. Good luck Like Bookmark June 15, 2006 at 8:07PM
