Landscaping projects typically involve layers of materials to create a visually appealing and functional outdoor space. Five common materials used in landscaping include:

  1. Mulch: Ideal for retaining soil moisture, regulating temperature, and suppressing weeds.
  2. Gravel: Provides drainage and serves as a low-maintenance ground cover.
  3. Pavers: Used for creating pathways, patios, and driveways.
  4. Boulders: Add visual interest and can be used for retaining walls or natural seating.
  5. Topsoil: Essential for establishing healthy plant growth and improving soil structure.
