Ways to Use Decorative Rocks Outside
The interior of your home isn’t the only part of your property that can be strategically and lovingly decorated to look beautiful and feel inviting. You also have the entire exterior of your home to consider. Regardless of how much time, effort, and money you’ve put into upgrading your outdoor environment, decorative rocks offer a versatile and affordable way to add even more beauty and character to your property. These three stunning ideas will inspire you to head to the home improvement store right away.
Build a Staircase In Your Backyard
If you have a sloping backyard, you may be looking for an attractive and practical solution to make the entire area look more cohesive and useful. You can use large slabs of rocks to create an outdoor “staircase”. Depending on your style, your staircase might range from formal and elegant to creative and eclectic. By surrounding either side of the staircase with plants, grasses, flowers, and large boulders, you can create a useful focal point in your backyard and transform the entire look and function of your space.
Design a Retaining Wall
Decorative rocks are the perfect material to build a gorgeous wall around your porch, garden, or pool deck. Unless you have construction knowledge, it’s best to let a professional company handle this task for you. Whether you need a long, tall wall or a small, simple wall, a professional company like Tropicscapes Landscape Design and Installation can help you design and build the perfect wall for your purposes. You can even outfit the wall with subtle lighting to accentuate it at night.
Make a Table!
If you’re crafty, you can actually build a stunning table with bench seating using nothing but wire cages, slabs of rock or wood, and various sized stones and decorative rocks. First, use one very large wire cage as the base for your table by filling the entire interior of the cage with different rocks and stones. Set a slab of wood, stone, or marble on the top to create a unique and rustic table. Complete the same concept for each bench seat, but use two smaller wire cages to support each end of the wooden bench you will place on top. This table arrangement is sure to be a conversation starter!
