How do you use landscape rocks to enhance your yard?

My front yard is slopped, I was told to use landscape rocks to add excitement to the landscaping.

Landscape rocks will add interest to your garden. You will be able to plant pretty rockery style plants in and around same. A sloped garden with grass can be difficult to mow. By adding Rocks you will have a natural looking garden which should be easier to maintain.

Well you just add the rocks to the edge of your yard where you would pot your plants . So leave some space to add soil and add plants and then put rocks in front as a fence.

There are a few different ways, first you could use them at the edge of the slope to make a retaining wall or you can put in various beds.

A line of rocks, backfilled with soil will provide a slightly level area for planting or grass, but gives a slight terraced look. Look at landscape design books for ideas.

I like them when people use them to fill in a little garden area like close to a house. It keeps weeds out and looks pretty, with bushes and hostas.
