As you drive through Las Vegas neighborhoods, you tend to see the same desert landscaping over and over again. Want to liven up your rockscape and set it apart a little? Here are some ideas to get you started:
-Use a variety of rock! Rocks should not be viewed as a simple substitute for grass—if you just take the grass out and put one type of rock in, you are going to end up with a boring, typical rockscape. Use different colors and types of rock to create some appealing lines and designs in your yard. Highlight a plant by creating a rock circle around it, drawing attention to it.
-Get creative! Have you ever seen the yards that look like they have a river or stream running through them, using boulders, river rock and other rock? You can get some added dimension to your yard with a little creativity. Think outside the box!
-Add a rock retaining wall. This works well in a large front yard, or in a backyard. Choose an area that is already a little built up, or that you would like to build up and go crazy!
