An attractive element for gardens which several landscapers take advantage of is decorative stones. Stones vary in size and shape and could be made to use in a number of ways depending on the kind of garden you’ve got and the facilities it could accommodate. Besides stones, several landscapers recommend the use of large or mid-sized rocks that can make an excellent piece of garden decoration. Decorating your garden is a task that you’d like to do it yourself but if you require a guide to the type of pebbles and stones you may use for your garden, here is some essential help.

• Gravel
They are pea-sized that are round and smooth. You can use them in flowering pots in addition to soil. It does not block water drainage and allows the soil to maintain its level of moisture in the pot. If you are planning to create large stepping stones on a pathway, you could put the gravel below them to let it obtain a grip and not move from its place. These are white or grey in color and put in a color to your garden besides the color of the grass and the flowers.

• River pebbles
They are round and have a smooth finish to them because they’re extracted directly from the river beds that have a natural and smooth texture. These pebbles are not that huge and are usually grey and light brown in color. You could use these pebbles near the flower beds to stop the growth of weed and to balance the level of moisture of the soil.

• Boulders
These are big and diversely shaped rocks which can’t be used on flower beds or the lawn due to the large size. Though it may be large, it features a decorative element in it and so, can be used to line the area if you have placed a water fountain in your garden. It highlights special attractions in your garden and so bringing about an aesthetical feeling.
