Tips for success
When designing outdoor and indoor projects with man-made rock and stone panels, experts offer some simple rules:
Mix and match - Select two or three types of rock, brick or stone panels that complement each other. Anymore than three usually is too much.
Choose one style - Rustic traditional or stark modern? Not both. For a more natural look, don’t mix styles.
Add dimension - Use more than one color or texture to add contrast, interest and dimension to rocks. Too many can be distracting.
Buy quality - Some companies sell inferior product in pre-packaged containers at inflated prices. Research products carefully.
Asymmetrical placement - In landscaped areas, rocks appear more natural when scattered and separated rather than lined up in symmetrical patterns.
Alternate textures - When adding texture to grottos, waterfalls, cliffs and other large features, imitate Mother Nature with random smooth and ragged patterns for a more authentic look. Use a variety of tools to create varied impressions.
