Have you considered adding rocks to your landscape? Decorative rocks are a creative way to make your outdoor space stand out above the rest. Finding the right rocks for your yard, however, isn’t always easy. Here are some of the most common decorative rocks used in landscaping to help you make your selection:
Do you want your rocks to be functional? If you need decorative rocks that can be used for walking paths, playgrounds or fire pits, you may want to consider pea gravel. Not only is pea gravel small, smooth and shock absorbent, but these stones come in natural, beautiful and polished hues for great aesthetic appeal.
Cedar Bark Stone
If you want rocks that will blend will with your plants, cedar bark stone can be an excellent choice. They may look like bark chips, but these stones offer more permanent benefits. Like mulch, cedar bark stones can help prevent weeds, erosion and moisture loss within your plant and flower beds.
For homeowners that want decorative rocks that offer a more clean and finished appearance with easy installment, we suggest white or brown river rock. This rock selection is known for its durability and simplicity, but it can also serve as a ground covering or dry creek bed.
