Landscaping is a simple way to improve a home’s curb appeal, efficiency, and value. The typical grass landscape design Las Vegas homeowners use has been impacted by water resources and has become unrealistic for many due to the heat. Landscaping with rocks is the best way to ensure your front yard survives the Las Vegas summer and looks good all year. Here are some inspiring rock front yard landscaping ideas for your next project.
Rock landscaping has become one of the most popular trends because it doesn’t require watering or fertilizing. With the effort to conserve water resources in Nevada, finding grass alternatives is paramount, especially in the front yard. SNWA Water Smart Landscape Program is an incentive that currently offers a rebate for grass converted to water-smart desert landscaping.
We often have customers who still want the grass look. Take a look at the photo examples in this blog because we install effective artificial grass that is easier to maintain than love turf and looks stunning.
A path lined with drought-friendly plants is an attractive way to make a front yard look organic and effortless. Walkways often have curves and lead to entryways, fountains, or the backyard. They can be made from square and rectangle stones, or loose rocks. Use similar-colored stones or a spectrum of tones to make things interesting. The most common rock colors are shades of tan, black, and gray.
Are you looking for water-conscious ways to make a breathtaking design? Water fountains make a perfect showstopper and recycle their water. Placing a stone fountain in the center of pavers or small rocks will impress the neighbors and save water overall. Stone fountains are present in a range of forms and sizes to accommodate the size of your lawn. Choose a suitable place for the stone fountain, preferably one that will cause the least amount of splashing possible.
Rock Retaining Wall
A rock wall adds dimension to your front yard landscape designs. Retaining walls will last several years with little maintenance and can be used for many lawn sizes. The stones used to build rock retaining walls come in different shapes and sizes. From shaped blocks to natural stones, the various options can alter the size of the project. Reach out if you need help planning a shape and style that will suit your front yard.
Placing a few larger stones among small stones, flagstones, and pavers have become increasingly popular in modern homes. This landscaping is more eco-sustainable than planting trees and grass in the entrance, especially in low-rainfall areas.
Pebbles as Details
Plants are difficult to maintain and often have unattractive seasons during the year. Decorating hardscape structures such as the main gate and the stairs with micro gravel gardens is a perfect alternative. These micro gravel gardens define each step and provide eye-catching, sharp visuals along the route.
Rock landscaping is the most guaranteed approach to improving front yard curb appeal while minimizing adverse weather effects. While grass and lush green plants make a beautiful backdrop, they are challenging to maintain, and the Las Vegas weather creates a sterile environment that often leaves plants dried up or dead.
