Landscaping Ideas with Rock
If you own outdoor power equipment, you owe it to yourself and your yard to use them in the best ways possible. But it’s easy to let your equipment sit in storage with no idea what to do with it. You have the tools, you just need some inspiration to make your yard the envy of the neighborhood—and to do it quickly and easily.
Edge Around Your Lawn
A string trimmer like these from Snapper can be one of the most impactful tools for your lawn. Plenty of people mow, but most stop there. A clean edge around walkways and flower beds add that extra “umph” that gets your yard noticed. (Plus, you can reach places your mower can’t.)
Pressure Wash Medium to Large Rocks
Using large stones can add interest to planted beds, water features, etc. You might not even realize you’ve got natural landscaping material already on your property. Clean off grime, mold and unwanted moss with your pressure washer and uncover the natural beauty. SFGate has tips on cleaning both large and small rocks used in landscaping.
Stripe your lawn
As we’ve said before, it’s one thing to mow, it’s another to stripe. Take your striping to a whole new level with striping pattern. Simplicity has a great video with directions on how to make a perfect arch striping. (They also have videos for diamonds and checkerboard.)
