The experts at Grasshoppers have years of experience with advanced hardscaping, and we would love to design and install your next landscaping rock layout!

What Are Landscaping Rocks Used For?

When installed by an expert, landscaping rocks do a lot more than just add interest and intrigue to your space. These features are essential for structuring outdoor spaces, adding functionality, and enhancing aesthetics. Some of our favorite applications for landscape rocks include:

  • Lining walkways
  • Concealing outdoor lighting or utility boxes
  • Building stairs or adding depth 
  • Forming a rustic fire pit and seating
  • Creating natural property lines
  • Shaping creeks or rivers away from buildings
  • Adding retaining walls and other important structure

When you include rock features as part of your overall landscape design and lighting scheme, the possibilities are literally endless. We take a lot of inspiration from nature, and we love creating new designs with common elements.

Best Types of Landscaping Boulders

Sometimes the key to creating a seamless hardscaping design is using what’s already around you! Our team strives to use stones already found in our area to create a natural and environmentally responsible hardscape. There are a few great decorative rock varieties in our area, including

  • Limestone Boulders: Also known as Sumter County boulders. Central Florida is abundant in natural lime deposits.
  • River Boulders: River boulders are smooth and worn rocks, ranging in size from a grapefruit to large accents. Their natural variation in color makes them perfect for waterfalls, ponds, and dry riverbeds.
  • Coquina Boulders: Prehistoric native rocks formed from fossilized coquina shells. A light-orangish color, many of them have perfectly round holes.
  • Finger Boulders: An irregular rectangle shape, suitable for retaining walls, fences, or waterfalls.
  • Fieldstone: Irregularly shaped and available in a variety of beautiful colors, fieldstones have been a significant issue for farmers and their fields. At some point, fieldstone began to be used for construction–and the rest is history!
