Boulder placement adds a visual appeal and integrates naturally into sites around the High Country. Each rock is unique with various shapes and colors and the selection and placement nestled in and around the landscape planting can be a natural attraction. The selection must coordinate with the details of your home and landscape.
For instance, lichen and moss covered stone suggests it’s been in place awhile where as using iron stained boulders pick up colors in nature or your home. The proper sized boulder for the job will depend on the scale of the surrounding space and home. If the rock size is wrong, the boulders fail to give a natural look and your best efforts are diminished by looking like dinosaur eggs plopped in the landscape instead of natural outcropping’s of stone emerging from the earth. In nature, where there’s outcroppings, there’s usually varying shapes and sizes linked together by earth and plant materials. With the majority of our landscapes we try to incorporate a natural look and feel. The use of boulders in the landscape helps to achieve the natural environment in which we are often times trying to mimic. Rocks and boulders can add a different dimension to a landscape and even hardscape. While mixing in and using boulders we can create a different space that leaves it feeling like a natural haven.
