See? Rocks can be fun, too! Especially when it comes to making over your backyard. There are so many creative ways to use pebbles and stone, the possibilities are endless. And because grass requires so much time and maintenance, not to mention a lot of water, landscaping rocks are a clever and efficient way to spruce up your backyard. Think about replacing grass with river rock, granite rock, or sandstone for that perfect worry-free desert look.
