1. Choose Your Rock
The first step in creating any decorative stone feature is to select your rock. You may look up different designs online or visit a local rock quarry for inspiration. Selecting your decorative stone will determine how your landscape turns out, so don’t feel shy about taking your time during this step.
2. Choose a Design
Before you begin laying the rock, you will first need to choose a design that resonates with you and your goal landscape. Are you hoping to install a decorative stone pathway or a rock garden? Or is the landscape rock purely for the purpose of diminishing weed growth? Deciding on your preferred landscape design will ensure that you or the landscaping contractor you hire are able to lay and recreate the rock landscape you want.
3. Prepare the Area
Once you’ve chosen your rock landscape design, it’s time to prep the site. Weed the area where you intend to lay the rock landscape, level it, and remove loose stones or other debris before starting on your project. A clean slate is best when it comes to laying landscape rock and decorative stone.
4. Lay Decorative Stone
Now that you have your decorative stone picked out, your design chosen, and the area cleared, it’s time to set to work laying the landscape rocks. If you are following a specific guide to achieving your landscape design, pay close attention and follow each step carefully. Once the landscape rocks have been laid, sit back and enjoy your finished work of art!
