I created a collection of images to submit to our landscaper for the Florida home we are renovating. In addition to basic maintenance and repairs, we are preparing to remodel several of the areas in the front and back yards to have low maintenance rock or pebble areas sporadically filled with tropical plants, succulents and cacti.
Hardscapes featuring rocks, pebbles, or gravel are a low-maintenance approach to landscaping that can be just as beautiful as lawns or flower beds. What keeps these areas attractive with minimal effort is weed blocking weed, controlled watering, and the occasional raking. This landscape style saves money on your water bill and is also better suited to drought-prone areas where water conservation is vital.
I love the look as it has a very modern feel to it, also the rocks or pebbles are a subtle contrast to the plants and allow the plants to take the spotlight. Here are a few landscaping ideas using light colored pebbles, rocks and gravel as a low maintenance garden solution.
