Why use boulders?
Boulders will add dimension and depth to any landscape design. Let’s say you have a very large, expansive lawn or let’s say you got rid of your lawn with the water rebates. Adding a boulder draws your eye in, creates interest, and gives you that third dimension. You have length and width on the lawn, but bringing a boulder in adds height.
Boulders also are beautiful. It’s really hard to outdo Mother Nature. She has given us infinite options in terms of patterns, colors, and textures. Lastly, adding boulders gives permanence to the site. It’s as if the boulders were there long before you were.
