1. Gravel

landscaping materialsGravel is one of the most versatile landscaping materials. You can spread it over a parking area, use it to fill spaces between stepping stones, and even utilize it as the base in a garden containing some types of plants that thrive in drained soil.

2. Bricks & Pavers

If you want to add function and visual appeal, add a patio or walkway to your backyard. Pavers (flat, thin stones) and bricks are an excellent choice for these projects because they are durable, fairly easy to install, and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.

3. Sand

During a patio or pathway project, you should add a layer of sand before you install pavers or bricks. By buffering them with sand, you can easily adjust the pieces. Afterward, fill in the cracks with sand to add stability.

4. Mulch

An excellent ground cover, mulch lends color and texture along with function. Because it traps moisture, it inhibits weed growth and helps plants thrive, while ensuring you don’t have to water them as often. 

5. Soil & Fertilizer

Many of your landscaping projects require plenty of dirt. To expand gardens and add raised beds, gardening soil and fertilizer provide enhanced levels of nutrients. You may also want topsoil for leveling and filling certain spots in your yard.
