Boulders: The Importance Of Boulders

Boulder-300x143We love landscaping with boulders as we feel that they really add an artistic natural element to any landscape design. Recently we took some time to drive around some local neighborhoods in Arizona to see what some various landscapes had to offer. We took some time to make various notes about many of the landscapes and we discovered that the desert landscapes with natural looking boulders really stood out from the rest. This simple, but outstanding feature will greatly improve the look of your landscape.

Why Boulders Are Better

Landscapes with these rock features seem to have more of a general substantial artistic look that many of the other yards with no boulders did not have. We found that they also allowed for the use of less plants since they added fantastic “curb appeal” to the yard. Using less plants helps save on watering costs, and they also encourage xeriscape plantings such as cacti and other desert specimens.
