Landscaping rock is a great decorative addition to the perimeter of your house or any decorative garden beds in the yard. One of the biggest benefits of landscaping rock is it last for ever.

Before the new rock gets installed it is important to make sure the grade around the perimeter of the house is correct. It is very important we make sure the dirt is sloping away from the house so the water will flow away from the foundation. Once the grade is sloped correctly it is time to install the new decorative landscaping rock to help improve the landscapes beauty and reduce the outdoor maintenance.
