Put the finishing touch on your landscape with rocks and boulders

landscape bouldersTraditional items like flowers and shrubs are typically first considered in landscaping. However, did you know that boulders and rocks are also a great choice? Landscaping experts suggest the idea of homeowners using rock gardens to give their yards a unique, relaxing feel. Finding boulders and rocks isn’t difficult and doesn’t cost as much as you may think.

Low Maintenance

One of the benefits of creating a rock garden with boulders and rocks is that you once it’s done, there’s not much to do to keep it up. Rock and boulder gardens are very low maintenance. Most of the time, these gardens look better when they have other greenery and moss growing on them. They’re created to be outside so that they can handle the elements. You can set your garden where you want and leave it to enjoy whenever you want.

Filling in Space

Not all homes are blessed with perfect soil. Sometimes, it can be  tough to get plants to grow. That’s where rocks boulders and rocks come in. Areas of your landscape that have a difficult time growing plants can quickly be covered with rocks and boulders. This gives your landscape some actual texture and saves you from staring at boring, open areas.

Rocks as Art

Did you know that rocks and boulders are aesthetically pleasing? That’s why so many home improvement experts recommend that they are used in landscaping. The best part is that you can enjoy the natural beauty of boulders and rocks without breaking the bank. Also, no two rocks or boulders are never the same, so there’s no concern about the rocks and boulders in your landscaping looking just like the rocks in your neighbor’s yard.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

My husband and I had been driving around for weeks looking at various landscape jobs in the villages and found just one place that we both really loved. We happened to be looking through Nursery web-sites and in looking at the photo gallery we happened to see pictures of the house that we loved under Mansfield's Web site. So we decided to go to the nursery to see what trees they had and how their prices were...(after going to a couple of other local nurseries we were shell shocked at the price of palms!) What we found was a great relief! The tree and plant prices were very reasonable and looked much healthier than many we had seen at other places. Being complete novices to Florida plants we sat down with the owner, Steve, and he gave us a very thorough education on palm trees - so we felt confident in the decisions we were making. We had decided that we did not want to do the "FULL" landscaping job all at once and wanted to start with just the trees so we could then fill-in later as we decided on what we wanted to plant...Steve and his son Ron, then walked us throughout the selection and helped us decide on 9 beautiful 18 ft Palms which they gave us an excellent price on. We set up an installation date for later that week - and Steve called and said they could come a day earlier if that worked for us - which was great as we had company coming in the next day! Ron and a crew came out to do the install, finished the planting in one day, removed some bushes etc that we knew we didn't want and the end result is beautiful - it has changed the whole look of the house....we LOVE it! Even though this is only step one of our landscaping - we are certain that we are going to be using Mansfield for our future expansions!

After contracting with Mansfield Landscaping, they were hard at work the next day. Within three days we went from boring to beautiful. We are the first on our block to have the landscaping changed from the original to something unique. To say it stands out is an understatement. We couldn't be more pleased.

Ray and Tam Murley

We just moved into our Village’s home last fall and had many expenses with new furnishings, but we really wanted to have at least a couple of palms now and did not want to wait another year until we could afford to redo our landscaping. After checking with a couple of other nurseries we were very surprised at how much lower the prices were at Mansfield Landscaping. The owner, Steve was very knowledgeable about where trees should or should not be planted. We were given as much time as needed to pick out and tag the exact trees we wanted on our own, but if we had any questions he was just around the corner to answer them. The trees are beautiful and of good quality. We look forward to working with them in the future to give our yard that professional look that we see so many of our neighbors have after using Mansfield Landscaping.

I would like to recommend Mansfield Landscaping to anyone who might want some quality work. I called a week ago yesterday and one week later my work was done. I went from having the worst yard in the neighborhood to one of the nicest. Steve is almost annoyingly accommodating and insistent on pleasing. He recommended plants of different colors, something I wouldn't have thought of. My favorite part is the wall - the pieces look like mica. The supervisor was the nicest person and a good communicator. He really knew what he was doing, having worked for Steve for years and due to the volume of work Mansfield does. I feel so happy today, like you would if you just got a new car!

I have moved 8 times all in FL and have put in a lot of landscaping. The landscaping Steve Mansfield did at my present home is the best ever. On a scale of 1 to 10, Steve and his employees are a good 10.

If you want to see an absolutely FANTASTIC job done by Steve Mansfield and his crew... come by my house tomorrow and you will be amazed.

Steve's been advising me for years to change what I had originally developed into something a little more stylish, but being the hard-headed Italian I am, I kept refusing until this year. I'm sick of our cold winters that kill all my pretty flowers so I let him convince me to change it all to a completely new look. I love to work with Steve, he sure knows his landscaping stuff and he may come off with a gruff exterior, but down deep, the man is a teddy bear and very easy to work with.

Oh Boy, I can't tell you how excited I am. The transformation is unbelievable. Steve and his guys were on the job for 2 days and through their creative talents came up with a wall/bed design utilizing many of my existing trees, unlike anything I have seen in the past.

Recently had Mansfield Landscaping add some shrubs, rock etc., and must say they did an excellent job. The crew was very polite and professional. We would recommend Mansfield for any landscaping project regardless of the size. Will definitely use Mansfield for any future landscaping projects. Thanks,Steve!
