What Are Rock Roads in Landscaping?

Gravel types-Big Easy Landscaping

Rocks are bulk materials product that plays an essential role in decorating for many residential and commercial landscaping services. Rocks roads, especially, provide an accent to the overall landscape design of the outdoor space of a home.

Over the years, landscape industries sold rocks for rock roads in a variety of colors, sizes, and materials. Rock roads have become a popular alternative to driveways and decorative concrete roads in landscaping because of how it naturally provides style and design to the overall landscape.

How Much Does Rock Roads Service Cost For My Outdoor Yard?

One of the most loved ways that rocks are used in landscaping a home is the gravel driveway. The cost of installing a gravel driveway to add aesthetic appeal to your property includes:

  • size and depth of the road
  • gravel type
  • soil conditions
  • labor
  • excavation
  • grading
  • permits
  • optional grid stabilization

A typical 1-car gravel driveway would cost $300-$900 while a 2-car gravel driveway would cost around $600-$1,800. We install gravel driveways to residential and commercial properties at an affordable price.

A gravel driveway on a lawn is preferred by many of our clients because they are cheaper compared to other driveway materials like asphalt and concrete. Likewise, gravel comes in many colors, is an eco-friendly landscaping material, definitely adds curb appeal, and will last up to 100 years with sound maintenance.

The Benefits of Rock Roads On Your Lawn And Landscaping

There are lots of reasons why we suggest rock roads for lawns in homes and businesses that want a perfect ground cover that is both aesthetically appealing and durable.

Here are the best reasons why many homeowners choose rock roads for their lawns:

  1. Rock roads can withstand harsh weather patterns. They do not react to extreme heat or cold, or dry or wet weather conditions.
  2. Rock roads can be designed with extreme versatility because you can choose from rocks that come in a variety of colors and sizes to be laid out in your desired pattern or style. There is always a rock that would blend into the overall style and architectural design of your home, landscape, and outdoor space.
  3. Rock roads exhibit exceptional drainage efficiency, especially during a heavy downpour. They provide a natural drainage system to your landscape.
  4. A well-designed rock road in your landscape can help bring out the flair in your outdoor space.
  5. Rock roads are low-maintenance. You don’t need to repaint them like concrete driveways or repair cracks.
  6. Rock roads are one of the easiest to install because they do not demand a lot of preparation procedures.
  7. Rock roads provide a durable landscaping solution even with frequent foot traffic. They can handle rough treatment all year round.
  8. Rock roads can increase the value of your home by offering instant curb appeal. Experts report that you can get as much as 14% of your home’s resale value with a rock road feature in your landscape.

Let us spruce up your lawn or outdoor space with a decorative and durable rock road that complements the design of your overall landscape and home. We can make your yard look more appealing with a variety of natural stones and a design that will make your property stand out.

Best Rocks For Driveway

Gravel Driveway _ Big Easy Landscaping

Currently, many stylish rocks can be installed on your driveway. These rocks are not only durable but add to the functionality and curb appeal of your landscape.  It is important to know that there are different types of gravel used for the different layers of gravel used on a driveway.

The best-suggested rocks for driveways include:

  1. Base Gravel #3 or clean stone: Placed at the bottom layer of an unstabilized gravel driveway. It is laid at least 4 inches thick and is used to improve drainage.
  2. Crushed bluestone item #4: Another option for the base layer of a rock driveway and is usually found in municipal driveways.
  3. #57 stone: The prominent type of stone for the middle layer of a driveway and also helps promote drainage
  4. Surface rocks for a rock driveway:
  • Crushed Stone #411:  It can handle moderate traffic from heavy vehicles.
  • Quarry Process or “Crusher Run”:  It is used best for driveways and walkways.
  • Pea Gravel:  Works very well for driveway aesthetics, made up of round, small stones that are available in many different colors.
  • Jersey Shore Gravel: Similar to pea gravel but comes in shades of tan, white, gold, and brown.
  • Marble Chips: Cost more than other types of surface stone for driveways, but considered the best gravel for driveway aesthetic appeal because of their white color and how they sparkle in the sunlight.
  • Blackstar or Blacktrap Rock: An excellent choice because of its very attractive dark gray color, its angular shape that makes them lock together, and its durability.

I enlisted Big Easy Landscaping help since I don’t know much about landscape upkeep. I wanted to do something for my mother since she loves to stay in her garden all the time. She loved what you guys did with her yard and was delighted with the new flowerbeds.

My sister recommended Big Easy Landscaping to me so I gave it a go. I wanted to have a pergola near the foyer, so I drove to their office and told them what I need. The guys arrived on time, they did some measurements and before I know it they’re done. Fast, smooth, and hassle-free…

So my husband and I bought a house with a large yard and decided to ask Big Easy Landscaping to work their magic. It took about a month or so, but the wait is worth it. The once barren area is now a beautiful lush area perfect for morning coffee and brunch with family and friends.
