Safety First with Rock Installation

While rocks can be a modern and sleek element design to add to your landscape, they can also be hazardous to install. However, we make sure safety comes first. Here’s some of the ways that we make sure you don’t get hurt from improper rock installation.


Level the Rock

We won’t let anyone get a twisted ankle on our watch. To prevent injuries, we check if your ground is level to make sure the rocks are steady and even before rock installation. We do this so rocks won’t topple or wobble when people are walking near or around them.


Create an Overflow Area

An overflow area is a space that acts as a buffer between you and potential misplaced rocks. Over time and weather, rocks will erode and pebbles will be swept away. An overflow area gives a space for debris to fall without getting the way of people, pets, and lawnmowers.

Rock Installation as a Mulch Alternative

Mulch Alternative

Consider switching out your wood mulch for rocks. The primary benefit of using rock over wood is water loss prevention. Due to the shade that rocks provide, it lowers the temperature of the soil underneath. Without the extra heat, water does not evaporate as easily. The shade will also keep your plants’ roots cool, which is especially helpful in the Florida heat. By substituting rocks for mulch, your plants will thrive with the soil’s increased water retention.

Whether and wherever you decide to use rocks in your landscaping, one way you can use rocks in your landscaping is to protect your plants.

The shade of the rocks block sunlight from penetrating through which can reduce your weed growth. Rock installation can also protect your plants from the elements. Due to their solid and sturdy nature, rocks can also prevent soil erosion and block out wind.

These rocks are not only good for decorating landscaping, but also good for soil too as they deteriorate. Limestone neutralizes acid, so as it decomposes it can raise your soil’s pH level. This could improve soil structure and help maintain plant health. Limestone is also primarily composed of calcium. As it deteriorates, your soil will absorb the calcium and strengthen your plants’ cell walls. In crushed form, it is one of the most versatile rocks in construction and landscaping.
