Landscaping is a great way to not only add value to your property, but also to create a stunning space that you will love to spend time in. The addition of tan river rock to an outdoor space is a popular choice among landscapers because of its attractive and exceptionally long-lasting qualities. Tan river rock is a premium inorganic mulch product that is very aesthetically pleasing. Tan river rock is multicolored and smooth textured rock that gives a landscape a clean and tidy look. While tan river rock is more expensive than our other mulch products, their unique appearance is sure to impress guests.
A major benefit of selecting an inorganic mulch like tan river rock instead of an organic mulch is that tan river rock does not need to be replenished yearly. When it begins to lose its vibrancy in color, our clients only need to wash the stone in order to return it back to its original state. Tan river rock is famous for the pleasing shine it has when wet leading it to be the best choice for landscape features that include running water. Additionally, our customers that want to know everything that is being introduced into their garden or landscape choose tan river rock because it will not add and chemicals or nutrients into their soil.

Unlike organic mulches, tan river rock does not provide any sustenance for bugs to munch on thus preventing the spread of potentially harmful critters such as termites. A properly applied layer of tan river rock acts as a barrier from sunlight reaching your topsoil. This has two major benefits; 1) with less sunlight reacting your topsoil there will be less water loss due to evaporation, leading to reduced watering needs, 2) the gap between your fertile topsoil and sunlight makes it very difficult for unwanted weed seeds that germinate on your topsoil from ever reaching sunlight, creating an effective weed preventative. Deeper than five inches may create serious issues in your landscape. If your soil does not have enough drainage pathogens such as fungus can thrive in overly wet conditions absorbing the nutrients of your topsoil. Additionally, overly saturated soil can cause root rot in your plants damaging sensitive root systems or worse suffocating root systems and causing plant death.
Landscaping rocks are also a great way to introduce color to an outdoor space. Everglades tan river rock will serve to add charm to your landscape and highlight the surrounding plants. If you're looking to add vibrancy to your landscape, choosing rocks in contrasting colors such as tan and black, will add that pop of color that you’re looking for, while still maintaining a classic, understated appearance.
