The Benefits of Rock and Mulch Beds


When it comes to deciding on whether you want to install rock in your landscaping beds or mulch, make a pros and cons list and decide what is going to work best for you and your landscaping. There are benefits to both and that is what we are going to dive into. Hopefully, this helps you decide which one you should go with for your lawn.


Rock Beds:

The first thing that comes to mind when wanting to install rock in your landscaping beds is, low maintenance. Rock beds are much easier to maintain, and it is something you are not going to have to change out or refresh year after year. Rock beds have that simple, classic look and sometimes that is the style someone is looking for. If you are looking to add texture to your lawn for instance, under a deck or around a patio, rock beds are a great idea.


Mulch Beds:

Mulch has so many great benefits and the most important being moisture retention. With the extra moisture, plants do not have to be watered as often and the extra moisture helps plants grow healthy. Another great benefit to using mulch, is that it will help prevent weeds. We all know weeds are a pain to deal with, so adding this extra layer of protection is going to be very beneficial for you and your landscaping beds.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            So, whether you choose to go with a rock or mulch bed, they both offer great benefits to your landscaping, and they both add great curbside appeal to your lawn.
