It’s a new year, and you might be looking for new ways to add a little drama to your garden at home. Instead of planting new flowers, why not try creating a rock landscape?

Here are a few examples of gorgeous rock landscapes to get your ideas and inspirations flowing.

The manicured lawn keeps everything looking neat and suburban, while the natural rocks provide a rustic edge, preventing the curb from looking boring.
2. Contemporary Shrubbery and Contrasting Gravel, Seattle WA
Using decorative rocks, pebbles or gravel is a great way to add interest and texture to any landscaping design.

This is probably the best example of how rocks and gravel can be used to create unique landscaping options.
