Creative desert landscaping with stone

When you’re landscaping with stone you are either doing it because you really like rocks or you live where water is scarce. It takes a bit of an artistic touch when using stone, otherwise it just looks like a pile of rocks.

That’s why I like St.George, Utah so much. Landscapers and homeowners have a lot of creativity when it comes to using stone.

Using stones and rocks for landscaping is becoming increasingly popular. Rocks don’t require much maintenance which is desirable, but more importantly, they save on water consumption unlike lawns.

I’ll bet you never realized how important rocks were until now.

I just wanted to say that I love your website. My husband and I followed your instructions on building our own home. Most of the work we did ourselves, but not all. We saved $90,000 in labor costs and now have a beautiful home that we own.

I built my own home doing all my own labor. My house costs me around $70,000 for materials. It took me 8 months to build and is about 2,000 square feet. I didn't think I could do it, but your house web site encouraged me. I used all the info you had.

Thank you,

I can't thank you enough for your free information web site about home building. I was looking for Electrical wiring diagrams when I found your site. It was very helpful.

My wife and I lost our home to foreclosure but we kept a plot of land to start over. We are halfway through the construction of our house. Your website gave us hope to start over and build a house with low payments. We are in our late 60's but we find it rewarding to put so much effort into a project that will reward us for years to come.
