Red Lava Rock

The Sarasota and Bradenton Red Lava Rock Landscape


Red Lava Rock is perhaps one of the most unique landscaping aggregates.  It is naturally occurring and gets its name from its source within Earth.  This aggregate has a distinct, porous texture and is very light weight.  This makes it easy to transport and easy to spread.  As part of your Bradenton and Sarasota Landscape project, it is a great way to add color and a rustic feel.  Sarasota Red Lava Rock projects usually include pathways, gardens, and more.

Red Lava Rock Properties

Unlike wood mulches, Red Lava Rock is considered a more permanent feature in your Bradenton and Sarasota Landscape.  It is less likely to dull in color, less likely to break down, and it cannot rot.  This makes it a very good for Florida climate.  There is even some research that indicates the dust that comes off of Red Lava Rock contains minerals that are able to feed plants, thus enhancing the soil over time

Red Lava Rock is often used in Bradenton and Sarasota landscape projects to help retain moisture in soil.  It is also known to control erosion.  A Red Lava Rock Sarasota Landscape should not fade, wash, or blow away.  It also isn’t going to attract wood pests, such as termites and ants.  Another benefit of the Red Lava Rock is that it insulates the soil from heat and cold.

If Red Lava Rock is going to be used as a mulch substitute, it is important to stay on top weeding.  While there is some weed suppression from the cover of the Red Lava Rock in your Bradenton or Sarasota landscape, aggressive weeds may still surface.  Proper installation and upkeep will help prevent this, and further weeding products can be purchased from 1 Stop Landscape Supply’s retail store.
