This week, a local rock wall and retaining wall installation company, B&D Rockeries, released tips for choosing the right rocks for your landscape. The company has served homeowner’s hardscape and retaining wall needs for over 35 years. They buy from local quarries like Calportland Company or Iron Mountain Quarry. These companies have been around for years, and supply various aggregate or dimension stones.

According to the post, one of the most common rocks is granite, which has a unique consistency and look. Many homeowners prefer granite for indoor decor, like kitchen counters or bathrooms, though it can also be a beautiful addition to gardens or rock walls. Flagstone also works well for walkways and patios, coming in a variety of colors and shapes. Another rock type mentioned is river rock, a stone shaped by running water in a river. This comes with a natural look, as well as a variety of colors. B&D Rockeries recommends river rock specifically for gardens.

Homeowners looking to brighten their landscapes should talk to a rockery expert like those at B&D Rockeries.
