Boulders: The rock-solid accent.

bouldersBoulders make an excellent accent to the landscape. A grade of boulders called “surface boulders” look more natural, and the color usually matches the natural colored granites. Bury approximately one-third of the boulders and place plants nearby to soften the overall look.

Granite: Your yard’s most beautiful flooring.

Use one-quarter or one-half inch minus granite (not screened granite) of natural color – such as desert gold or beige. These colors provide a more natural desert look and the size is easier to walk on.
