Choosing the right rock color for your desert landscape

Choosing the right rock color for your desert landscape

Choosing the perfect color for anything can be tricky. For instance, if you pick the wrong paint color for a room, you could spend hours repainting.

The stakes can be even higher when you’re deciding on the color of landscape rock that’s going to be delivered to your house by the ton. You don’t want to have to redo that! Luckily, at MDI Rock we deal with a lot of homeowners and business owners and can help you through the process.

One popular choice we often suggest is Madison Gold 3/4". The Earth-colored granite is a large, clean grade that is also a byproduct in the creation of sand. In addition to the tan stones, Madison Gold features small bits of mica to texturize the blend and allow it to shine in the desert sun. It’s a classic color that’s popular throughout the state, and it comes in a several sizes in addition to the 3/4".

Apache Pink is another popular option that looks especially nice against white homes. This stone contains dark and light pink tones, which glisten beautifully when exposed to the sun. It’s a good choice if you want to add a more decorative look to your home or commercial building. Apache Pink comes in several sizes, and some of our blends are screened to remove fines and other rock particles.

Charcoal can be a good choice for customers with contemporary-style homes or modern industrial buildings. It’s not for everyone—it can sometimes clash with dark browns—but its stunning dark gray appearance can be a perfect complement to sleek, chic homes.

Those are just a few of the dozens of options you can choose from at MDI Rock. We recommend you take samples of your favorites home with you and see how they actually looks up against your home or business. Then let us know what you decide.

At MDI Rock, we supply a wide range of products for all sorts of uses at competitive prices. In addition to our many choices in decorative groundcovers, we provide rip rap, flagstone, topsoil, sand, gravel, and a huge selection of boulders.
