Since there are several types of residential and commercial lawns, sometimes home and business owners alike find it difficult to select a type of lawn that they would like to have for their property. They are torn between many options, including rockscapes, grasscapes, traditional lawns, and others. We get asked often times, which is better between rockscapes and traditional lawns. As always, we tell our clients to go for a traditional lawn if possible. To help you understand why, let us look at the benefits of rockscapes vs. traditional lawns:
Rockscapes Vs Traditional Lawns
Rockscapes are some of the most durable types of lawns for homes and commercial premises. Due to the hard nature of rocks, a rocky lawn will not be damaged as easy as will a traditional lawn, which is made of grass. Things that would easily destroy a grass lawn such as intense heat from the sun, fires, pests, pesticides will not have any negative impact on your rockscape.
2. Low Maintenance
Besides removing weeds every once in a while, rock lawns hardly require any other maintenance procedure. These lawns can withstand severe outdoor elements and retain their elegant look from January to December. Too much sun or too little rain will not have much impact on the life and look of your rock lawn. Finally, should you ever decide that you want to modify specific design aspects, it is as easy as repositioning or relocating the rocks to match your needs.
3. Curb Appeal
While all types of lawns can make your property look more beautiful, a lawn made of decorative rocks or other stones can give your property even more curb appeal. Imagine the different colors, designs, and patterns that rockscapes feature. These types of lawns provide a greater curb appeal to your property than traditional lawns.
4. Property Value
Even though all types of lawns can boost the value of your property, a rocky lawn can increase the value of your home more. You will notice that some of the most expensive properties in High Desert and Inland Empire, CA have one characteristic in common. They feature rockscapes as opposed to traditional lawns.
5. Soil Protection
There is no doubt about the fact that vegetation protects the ground from what is called soil erosion. Traditional lawns comprising of grass, flowers or other vegetation have been used for many centuries for soil protection besides curb appeal. But many people are slowly turning to rockscapes for the same purpose. Lawns that are made of decorative rocks have proven to be more effective at preventing erosion and other soil problems. The rocks compact loose soil particles, making them immune to erosion causes such as wind and faster moving water.
As you can see, rock lawns offer more benefits than traditional lawns. In fact, they augment all the benefits offered by traditional lawns. That is the reason why we often advise our clients to go for them.
