It is a desert here and water is limited. There are plenty of small lawns but a lot of yards have rocks. They often are arranged in patterns. Simple like all grey with black lava borders along walks or under shrubs to complex like Indian symbols.

I want to offer a service of neatening or creating these patterns. Neatening would be manually moving displaced rocks back into position. Creating would be adding or rearranging rocks to create the pattern.

What to call this service?

Would that fall under the category of Xeriscaping?

I guess it is part of Xeriscaping since rock yards don't use much water. If I called it Xeriscaping I think customers would expect a broader range of service than straightening up their rocks or making patterns.

I was thinking of names like Rock Patterns and Pattern Repair but nothing sounds quite right.

Rock Garden Rehabilitation or Rock Garden Rehab?

Yea that sounds better.

You could come up with some pretty good attention grabbing headlines on a flyer if you used that.
