    Landscape rocks are often used to create the effect of a stony, barren landscape and can be bought at local garden/nursery shops. A good time to buy them is in winter, when they're discounted (as it's their "off" season). Though by now you might have missed this opportunity! They may already be out of stock or may not come in the size you need.

    Some people deliberately use rocks as the top dressing for their garden, especially in difficult or arid zones. The rounded shapes of the natural stones evoke a more rustic look. Native plants help maintain this illusion by providing informal surroundings and breaking up the monotony of close-quartered, evenly spaced stone structures.
    This careful placement requires effort to make it visually pleasing so that you will be happy with your decision for years to come. It is not easy to create the right balance between rock and vegetation because rock is strong but solid colors clash with green foliage; while vegetation is soft but many plant species can't thrive in a dry environment.

    Front yard rocks are often used to help control the flow of water and make irrigation easier. They can be added in areas where the soil is too heavy, helping drainage just as much as throwing a giant rock into a creek. Rocks also provide some micro-habitats for wildlife by providing nests for all sorts of local creatures looking to escape predators or heat waves, while at the same time creating shade that helps keep waters cooler. If you're going to landscape your front yard with rocks, try picking up white quartz stones from whatever quarry has them cheapest near you.

    Every landowner has different preferences as to what type of landscape they would like in their front yard.
    But, the most important thing is that the layout not interfere with any plumbing or drainage systems and be structurally sound. Once those two things are cleared up, it's all preference after that. Landscapes can range from a naturalistic approach to a more geometrical design in order to best suit a homeowner's needs and tastes.

    A first step is to get rid of any and all weeds. Get a shovel from your garage and use the top of the blade to dig up dandelions or other plants that might grow by pulling them when difficulty arises because of their long roots. Next, you should supply a variety of rocks at least four inches in diameter with an equal space in between each one. Once they're placed where you want them individually, put down some black weed barrier fabric that will ruin anything else's chances who comes into contact with it - except for moss!
