Desert Plum Gravel Our cover photo is Cactus Berry 1/2". This stone is granitic stone material in origin. Using decorative rock, decomposed granite, crushed stone and gravel, in your landscaping saves you time and money but can also increase property value. Grass is great and a healthy lawn is a vital part of most homes, but usually best for small areas in the back yard to relax on. In front and side landscape area it requires regular mowing, fertilizer, and irrigation that can be eliminated.
Did you know it takes 35,000 gallons per year to properly water 1,000 sq feet of turf, while low water plants use only 15,000 gallons or less for the same amount of space? Reducing the amount of water, fertilizer, and pesticides means landscaping with rock is also better for our environment.
