It isn’t just that decorative stone is available in a wide variety of colors and textures that make it add great curb appeal to your home, there are many benefits of a decorative stone installation. Whether you choose large red granite, with its deep texture and unique look, or multi-colored pea gravel, which adds vibrancy and color to your landscaping, you’re in for a host of benefits to your property, including these 3:

Reduces Weeds By Blocking Sunlight

Although it seems weeds will grow anywhere, they need sunlight just like more desirable plants do. Decorative stone, when used in gardens or other features, creates a barrier that keeps the sun out of the open areas. By removing the sun exposure to the seeds that would grow into unsightly weeds, you’re essentially cut off their food supply, preventing them from ever getting off the ground. Best of all, your decorative stone installation looks better than an open garden!

Insulates Roots From Extreme Heat And Cold

Anyone who lives in a brick house will tell you: they’re great at regulating heat. On the hottest summer days, brick homes tend to stay cooler, and in the dead of winter, they hold in the heat well. The same properties apply to decorative stone. Although a bed of pea gravel or other stone isn’t weather-proof, it helps to regulate the temperature of the soil by blocking the sun’s rays and maintaining a consistent temperature. With the soil temperature regulated, your plants’ precious root systems are also kept in an environment that promotes good plant health, helping to ensure that your beautiful landscaping will flourish.

Is Long Lasting And Low Maintenance

Rocks will outlast all of us, and Central Services installs quality decorative stone that is designed to last many years in your outdoor areas. Best of all, our decorative stone installations maintain their beauty for many years, even through harsh Wisconsin weather. Depending on your choice of decorative stone, you may occasionally have to reposition some stones that were displaced by wind or animals, and occasionally rinse the stones to remove debris and brighten their surfaces. This minimal maintenance is a small price to pay for a beautiful decorative stone installation.
