Pale Pebble Landscape Designs
I was creating a collection of images to submit to our landscaper for the Florida house we’re renovating. In addition to basic maintenance and repair, we’re getting ready to convert several of the spaces in the front and rear yards so that they have low maintenance rock or pebble areas filled sporadically with tropical plants, succulents, and cactus.

Hardscapes that include rocks, pebbles, or gravel are a low maintenance approach to landscaping that can be just as beautiful as lawns or flower beds. What keeps these areas attractive with minimal effort is weed block fabric, controlled irrigation, and the occasional raking. This style of landscape will save money on your water bill and is also better for drought prone areas where water conservation is key.

I love the look because it feels very modern, and the rocks or pebbles are a textural contrast to the botanicals. Here are a few landscape design ideas incorporating pale pebbles, rocks, and gravel as a low maintenance yard solution.
