American Stone for

Xeriscape Ground Cover

  Create a garden that is easy to maintain and beautiful to look at with this Xeriscape Kit.

Xeriscaping your yard will reward you with water savings and beauty. The beautiful DIY project will turn crushed stone into a bursting landscape of color.

 

 Xeriscaping your landscape with ground cover made from natural stone is a great start to your summer DIY projects.  Xeriscaping is an easy DIY project that is affordable and increases the value of your home and garden.

Water is an increasingly scarce resource and is expected to substantially increase in cost. By creating water-wise landscaping you are choosing your personalized splash of color from bright reds to natural tones that will stand out from others on your street. This DIY project lets you mix and match colors and textures of cobble stone and crushed stone.

The environmental benefits are substantial too. By eliminating the use of fertilizers and pesticides you reduce run-off and ground water pollution. Stone landscapes naturally avoid losing water to evaporation and run-off. The stone on the surface moderates the temperature of the moist soil underneath. The results are healthier plants that force out weeds, far less yard maintenance, and a beautiful yard. Many xeriscape plants are native and thrive in the weed free rock environment. These plants are inherently beneficial to local wildlife as well as attractive to wild birds.

A natural maintenance free area is created by choosing drought tolerant plantings and concealing drip irrigation systems. Control weeds with a professional strength Weed Barrier fabric.

Eliminate Mowing

Some areas are meant to be looked at and not walked on. River Cobbles in the 6-12" size give a nice, bright area, but they are just big enough to discourage foot travel.
