What Houzz contributors are saying:
Notice how the boulders in this almost-monochromatic garden add texture while pulling out the gray from the shingles. Meanwhile, the crushed stone on the garden floor seems to flow effortlessly from the house, making a second meaningful connection between home and garden.Choose your boulders carefully to create your connection, remembering color, texture, size and shape. An ill-chosen boulder can be an eyesore rather than an asset in your design.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
A japanese style might work well for you. Interesting beds, then a more decorative gravel area in the middle. (in this case they rake the gravel - like a zen garden). Use of large rock and mulch in beds and then a good balance of un used fine gravel areas.
