Landscaping with Stone and Rock

Stunning Features Using Natural Materials

Here in Calgary we might not have the wealth of plant choices available to our more temperate neighbours, but when it comes to creating statements with rock and stone, we’re limited only by our imaginations.

Greentree 10A Patios v02 300x199 Landscaping with Stone and RockRocks and boulders can be used to create a unique front-yard feature, or to terrace a sloped side yard, creating the setting for a creek or dry riverbed.  Some carefully placed rocks can also provide a quiet place to sit, or a backdrop for showcasing your favourite plants.

A flagstone patio sporting the textures and colours of real stone feels wonderful beneath bare feet and provides a stunning setting for relaxing evenings around the firepit.  Curved pathways or retaining walls in granite, rundle or sandstone are distinctive and unique.

While they’re not technically natural rock, it’s worth mentioning here that there is also a huge variety of interlocking brick and patio blocks that give the look and feel of rock with a uniform shape and size that lends itself to a more formal style.

So if you’re looking to create a statement with your landscaping, consider the ways rock and stone can be used in your yard to create beautiful, functional features.

Here at Greentree Landscapes, we specialize in building exquisite landscaping features in rock and stone for those who want something out of the ordinary.  Greentree has been landscaping in Calgary for over 20 years, and we have a long list of satisfied clients.
