Landscaping with Decorative Garden Stones

Ideas for using decorative stones as part of your landscaping scheme
There are many ways to use decorative stones in your garden. They can be incorporated into any design to help define an area and they are also useful for retaining moisture but, most of all, they are very low maintenance. When used over large areas, in conjunction with weed control fabric, they also help keep your garden looking good longer, with less effort.

Landscaping with pebbles and cobbles



Decorative stones help to define an area, regulate moisture under the soil surface and are very low maintenance. When used over large areas, in conjunction with weed control fabric, they also help keep your garden looking good longer, with less effort.  

Some ideas for using decorative stones in your garden include:

• A thin row alongside a path and a bed to help define the edges or even to create a border definition to separate a hedge and a path, for example. 

• White pebbles are particularly effective when used alongside an expanse of green lawn

• Plant low growing grasses next to an area of stones for a stark contrast





As one season’s planting transitions into the next, you can sometimes be left with holes in the border but the addition of pebbles will help to fill unsightly gaps. 


Combining a mixture of colours and textures allows you to add visual interest, especially in areas that are overly dry or simply too shady.  

If you are starting a new planting scheme or creating an entirely new garden from scratch, introducing pebbles and cobbles can help to make a garden look more established quite quickly.  




Pebbles and cobbles help the soil to retain moisture so if you are looking to plant a drought garden or simply define an area that tends to be quite dry, a bed of stones planted with lavender and grasses for year-round interest is an excellent solution. 

With such a range of colours and textures to choose from, everyone can enhance the appearance of their garden easily and quickly, at any time of year.
