Landscaping With Boulders: Let Out Your Creative Instincts! (part 2 of 2)
What boulder type should you use?
Boulders come in different sizes and shapes; therefore, you have to determine what type you should incorporate with your landscaping idea. If your place is not that big, using gigantic boulders will ruin the plan. In the same manner, using smaller boulders if your yard is spacious will result to the place swallowing them; thus, a ridiculous sight. The color is one aspect that must be carefully chosen as wrong color picks can end the landscape design not too pleasant at all.
Be wise to select the right ones then as you are going to use them for permanency. If you have got a certain mood, you can choose a monotonous color to treat that landscape mood right all year round. But if you are not certain what mood you prefer, you can always select several colors of them. When putting the boulders, you can group each color family, or you can re-invent by mixing and matching together for a different look.
By the way, boulders do come in a variety of shades, including vibrant yellow, red, calming white or fresh ivory, soft grays with streaks of green moss, and black. With these color choices alone, you have different options for your landscaping plan. And that is the good thing about boulders because they come in exciting colors that surely give you nice options to match your preference and taste.
Color has an exciting influence that plays up with the entire landscape design, so you can actually use your boulders as medium to sort out the different areas of the garden and transform them into a calming or energizing spot. Whatever it is that you prefer, landscaping with boulders will render an air of solidity which, of course, gives you that nice, rewarding feeling knowing you got it permanently fixed with your garden.
