Decorative Rock as a Mulch Alternative

Decorative rock comes with a higher upfront cost, but in the long run is usually much cheaper than re-mulching your landscape beds every year.

Mulch Installation Service

Aside from making your flower beds look gorgeous, mulch helps your plants as well.

Mulch provides a barrier of protection from the sun, which helps your plant roots stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Keeping the sun off the soil also helps prevent weeds from sprouting and ruining the view of your stunning landscape.

Mulch applied at the proper depth of 2”-3” helps retain moisture. Too shallow and the ground dries up, too deep and you are dealing with mold, fungus, and root rot.

Keeping the appropriate layer of mulch on your flower bed is the healthiest service you could provide for your plants.

 New mulch is applied mostly during the early spring in the Fort Smith and Van Buren areas in order to give your flower beds a fresh look that lasts all season. Mulch is available in a basic hardwood-style shredded mulch, or in a premium cedar shredded mulch. Dyed mulch is available in several attractive colors including red, black, brown, gold, or you can choose to have a natural look.

Rock Delivery and Installation

The biggest advantage rock has in your beds is the low maintenance. Install rock once and the bed is done forever, no need to replace it every year or two.

Unfortunately, rock does have a major disadvantage when compared to mulch. Rock will not insulate your soil nearly as well as mulch.  Rock also absorbs heat from the sun and can actually kill any flowers you may have planted. If you have a bed with some medium-sized or larger shrubs, or maybe you just want a nice bed with no plants at all then you should seriously consider installing rock.

Types of Rock Available

Fortunately, we are in the Arkansas River Valley, which makes river rock abundant. River rock is available in pea-sized 1/2”-1”, medium-sized 2”-4”, and in a large landscaper size.

Clean cut gravel is another popular choice, it is the gray gravel you normally see used in driveway and walkways. Clean cut gravel is available in a wide variety from 1/2” to 4”+.

Specialty pebbles are one of the most sought out rocks in our area. These range from small 1/2” pebbles up to 3”. Pebbles come in almost every color imaginable, the most popular being black, gray, white, and brown. They are usually available in a polished or unpolished finish as well.
