Black Mexican Beach Pebbles - Rocks Around Your Foundation
Category Landscape Rock
Landscaping stones can be a welcome addition to any part of your home, a list that includes spaces around your garden areas and even around your pool, porch, patio, and deck areas. Fortunately, there are many ways you can use decorative landscaping stones to make the areas around your foundation stand out in all the best ways possible. Read on to discover our rundown of the top benefits of using landscaping stones around your foundation.

Replacing Foundation-Damaging Plants with Stones

Certain plants have root systems that can be potentially problematic for your foundation and home. If you have any plants or shrubs that pose a risk to your foundation due to the possibility of root intrusions that could weaken your home’s base structure, consider using landscaping stones as a substitute for living plants—at least the ones with deeper root systems. You can still include plants with less invasive roots near your foundation. The main benefit here is a lower risk of foundation cracks and related damage.

Making Your Foundation Less Noticeable

All homes need foundations, but some foundations are a bit unsightly—or at least a bit more noticeable than what’s preferred. Landscaping stones can help with this problem by taking the focus off your foundation. 

You can always go with brighter stones or decorative rocks that enhance any flowers or plants you might already have. Darker-hued stones such as polished black river rocks can work as well if your foundation is a color that can be contrasted with darker tones. This way, your foundation will be both functional and a bit decorative, too!

Using Landscaping Stones to Save on Lighting Costs

If you’re looking to keep costs in check, consider replacing some of your artificial lights with brighter stones, such as snow-white pebbles, that reflect light well. This way, you’ll get a natural brightness boost from the sun and moon and benefit from some added savings, too. Granted, this isn’t practical in all areas around your foundation, but it certainly works in spots where there’s more direct access to natural light that can be reflected by the decorative stones.

Extending the Area Around Your Foundation

Another way to go with your foundation is to really enhance it with decorative stones, which is an appealing benefit if you’re limited on garden space around your home. What you’re doing in this instance is using landscaping stones to create a larger space around your foundation. The stones can serve as the base, and you can then dress it up with plants or other elements. You can even extend the space enough in certain areas to add bushes and shrubs to create new focal points in your yard near your home.

Keeping Weeds in Check

One more benefit associated with using decorative stones around your foundation is having fewer issues with weed removal. What’s more, you’ll be able to keep the soil in place around your plants, which also helps with drainage issues. You’ll also be rewarded with living foundation elements that look better due to reduced weed growth. On a related note, you can also use landscaping stones to replace grass that’s too close to your home and foundation, which further minimizes lawn maintenance and yard care tasks throughout the year. 

If you’re looking for a great way to complement your home’s foundation, surrounding it with decorative rocks, stones, or beach pebbles can be an ideal solution.
