Topsoil is the clean, upper layer of soil. Topsoil is rich in organic content, which makes it easy for plants to grow. It is often used as a sod underlayment and in garden beds. Dirt is exactly what it sounds like! It can have many particle sizes and is often referred to as “fill dirt”.
Landscape fabric is the ultimate tool in the fight against weeds. Fabric, when used as a barrier between the soil and decorative rock or mulch, helps to allow soil to breathe but prevents unsightly weeds from coming to the surface. Fabric also does not break down like plastics.
Boulders come in many shapes, colors, and sizes. Some boulders are naturally formed and quarried – often called surface boulders. Surface boulders and other natural boulder types are characterized by “round” edges and are smoother. Other boulders are manufactured and made to match the many decorative rock colors Pioneer offers and have more defined edges.
Decorative landscape rock is an excellent choice for most Southwestern landscapes. The geological diversity found in the western United States allows for a colorful design aesthetic – there are literally hundreds of colors and sizes of decorative rock. Decorative rock is often used in xeriscaping or in low-water landscapes as a means of both conservation and beautification.
Moss rock is a type of flagstone or sandstone, usually with brown and red color hues, that is covered in types of moss and lichen. With the variety of colors and shapes, moss rock can be used to add texture and color to any landscape.
