Default Rock Yard

We want to go from grass to colored rocks in our Villa. Our back yard is much larger than most. I need recommendations of people/companies that do really good work...at a fair price (!).

Thanks!

Jesse at J & J Hardscapes 352-643-0079 completed our landscaping. His prices were fair & he did an amazing job. He has an ad on Talk of the Villages with more reviews as well.

OP, you should check with ARC (community standards) I do not believe this is allowed.

As long as it is a Courtyard Villa (with walls around the yard), you are OK. CYV's are the only homes allowed to have a rock yard per the ARC and your deed restrictions.

With the blessing of the ARC, the Village Palms replaced all the grass at our CYV with landscaping rocks.

We are more than satisfied with their work.

Just a word of caution, you will still get weeds, etc with rock, so while your yard will be lower maintenance, it will not be maintenance free.

Why not? I’m considering a mixture of more rock, low maintenance plants, and ground cover
