With water levels at Hoover Dam plummeting, using grass, trees and other water intensive ornaments is no longer a viable option. Homeowners can use decorative rocks to bring added color and life to their home, while reducing the cost of their water bill significantly.

Save Money on Your Water Bill Using Decorative Rocks

Visiting a decorative rock specialist in Las Vegas should be one of the first things you do when planning to decorate your home for a desert landscaping project. By removing trees, grass and flowers that require large amounts of water, you can also save a significant amount of money on your annual water bill. Decorative rocks add an air or prestige to your home, require very little maintenance and can be installed quickly.

Types of Decorative Rocks

There are four main categories of decorative rock options available for homes: flagstones, boulders, pavers and landscape rocks. Each option serves its own unique purpose and function. Flagstone is a perfect Las Vegas rock that can be used as a walkway, or laid out for a patio. Boulders help to provide contour and a dynamic twist to your home. Pavers are great for meeting areas, gazebos and anywhere else you need a large and colorful flat surface. Landscape rocks come in varying colors and styles, and they can be used to replace grass or provide accents around a flower garden.

Landscaping Techniques

Making the call to add rocks to your landscape doesn’t mean you have to get rid of your lawn completely. If you like, you can use the rocks to help identify your perimeter, create an illuminated walkway for your existing green landscaping. Build a fire pit in your backyard so that you can gather around a fire during the cool winter nights typical of Las Vegas. Use river rocks to line the sides of walls and create a sort of rock-based baseboard around your home. Use rocks creatively, and design your own desert rock artwork to make your home an inviting and welcome home for all who visit.
