Landscaping with rocks and mulch is an easy and functional way to revamp your front yard. These materials are low maintenance and enhance your front yard’s natural beauty all season long.
Whether your front yard is sloped, in full sun, or partially shaded, you can create a stunning landscape design with rocks and mulch that will fit your lifestyle and up your home’s curb appeal.
Build a rock retaining wall
Use boulders or river rocks to build a retaining wall in your front yard. Depending on the amount of space you have, you can create a multi-tear garden to grow anything from vegetables to flowers! This is a great DIY project that will enhance the curb appeal of your home.
Stone lined flower bed
Build a mulch mound flower bed and line it with light stones to create a stark contrast border for your bed. Mulch is an easy and affordable way to build a simple flower bed, while the stones lining the base will prevent soil erosion.
Low maintenance desert landscape
If you have a hilly front yard, you can use sandstone, river rocks, and strategically planted succulents to create a beautiful low maintenance desert landscape. How the colors of sandstone and the sage green of the succulents complement each other will impress your neighbors.
One of a kind rock pathway
Create a pathway to your front doorstep using large flat rocks. You can make it curve, wind, or zigzag for a completely unique design. Create a mosaic by puzzling different shaped rocks together.
Replace grass with rocks
Can’t keep your grass alive? You aren’t the only one. Grass requires a particular amount of light and scheduled waterings. Replace high maintenance grass with low maintenance rocks. Whether your front yard is in full sun or completely shaded, rocks don’t require water.

Raised vegetable garden bed
Use large stones to build raised garden beds that will withstand any weather. Grow seasonal vegetables and herbs in your very own front yard. Every dinner will be farm-to-table with this design.
Cascading water feature
Use large rocks to create a cascading water feature in your front yard. It will serve as a blissful sanctuary to you and anyone who walks by.
Mixed rock garden
Add variety and visual layers to your rock garden by using rocks of all shapes, sizes, and colors. From boulders to pebbles no rock is out of the question.
Rocks for steps
Is your home on a small hill or does your front yard slant? Use a mixture of flagstone, paving stones, and concrete to create steps to your front doorway.
Mulch borders and rock yard
Use mulch to create planting areas along the edge of your front yard and fill in the remaining space with rocks, pebbles, and shrubbery. Not only is this a low-maintenance yard, but it will establish space between your home and those passing by.
A meandering pebble pathway can transform an overgrown front yard into a neighborhood whimsy. Establish a pathway by weeding the area clear, lining it with stone, and covering it in pebbles. This design is low-cost and requires minimal effort.
Creative stone designs
Cover a part of your front yard with pebbles or gravel and design a beautiful pattern with smooth river rocks. You can change the design to match your mood or whenever creativity strikes!

You should budget about 10% of your home’s total value on landscaping. Homeowners typically allot a smaller portion of their landscaping budget to their front yard than their backyard, but there is no strict guide.
