landscape trendsAs more people have moved away from a yard covered in grass, we’ve seen interesting landscape trends using decorative rock and built-in features. At Whitewater Rock and Supply, our rock yard offers a vast selection of natural stone in a range of colors and sizes to help you create these design features in your yard.

Outdoor Rooms
With our beautiful desert weather, many homeowners have opted to extend their living space outdoors, creating inviting areas that are much more than patios. With more comfortable furniture such as sofas and armchairs, outdoor rugs, pillows and even decorative lighting and accessories, outdoor rooms are a landscape trend that is here to stay.

Paver or Pebble Decks
Concrete decks are often dull and uninviting. A newer trend is to create a deck or patio area using pavers or pebbles. With an array of colors and sizes, it’s easy to find natural stone that compliments your home’s style. Pebbles are a quick and easy way to create a separate section of your yard. With a little more thought, pavers can be arranged in a variety of patterns and colorful stones are often inserted to add contrast and interest.

Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits
While our desert days are unbelievably perfect, the evenings do cool down in the winter, and we’ve seen an increase in interest for outdoor fireplaces and fire pits. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit creates an interesting focal point, an inviting conversation area, and helps your patio feel like a true outdoor living room.

Sculpture and Pottery
An easy addition to your landscape plan is adding stone pottery and sculpture. Whether you plan your landscape design around an artistic focal point or fill an empty corner with potted plants or flowers, these types of additions are a popular feature. Visit Whitewater Rock & Supply to see our array of choices for stone accessories.

Built-In Benches and Barbecues
To create a truly upscale outdoor space, built-in stone features are the choice. We see natural stone used to create built-in benches and seating areas, barbecues, accents on columns, and home facades. Natural stone is very popular as it is extremely durable and adds unique colors, texture and contrast to your outdoor design.
