Boulders: the element that ties everything together.
You can make any landscape look more natural—while keeping a fresh open feeling—by using boulders. Imagine a gently sloped yard with an eye-catching stacked stone retaining wall. Consider large boulders surrounding a fire pit (just big enough to warm your feet by the fire). A stone stairway leading down to the water’s edge could appear elegant. A boulder could serve as a natural bench in a magical spot where you can soak in the views. Or a garden border could feature boulders that share the same color palette as your home. The design options are endless!
Boulders create dimensional interest. They also offer noticeable natural transitions between your home, hardscape, and plantings. If there’s one element that has the ability to tie everything together, it’s boulders.
