It's amazing what you can create in terms of landscaping with some garden pebbles, rocks and stepping stones! If you're thinking of finishing off your gardening space then I would definitely take a trip to Lowes because they have a really nice selection. Whether you have a front yard or a backyard that needs some serious TLC, you can create some lovely borders, patios and designs with rocks and stones of different kinds. You can also incorporate these materials into garden beds as well as utilizing them for building outdoor furniture such as benches and tables, especially in mosaic designs. Wouldn't it be awesome for example to use these lovely garden pebbles and some grout to create a nice mosaic floor or table for the backyard!
So what kind of rocks or stones should you choose? Well, personally I prefer natural materials whenever possible. That means no rubber or resin stones. Sure, these proucts can be useful and practical in some settings, but in terms of landscaping I would definitely stick with real stones, real pebbles and real pavers. Next, you should think about the sizes you need. Would tiny little pebbles be a better option and not larger stones for your project, or do you think it would be easier to do your landscaping with some sizeable stepping stones? Either way, Lowes is a really good place to (although I'm sure Home Depot wouldn't be far off in terms of their selection.) Another place to look into would be your local gardening center since sometimes you can really find some nice products there that area affordable, as well as local to your area.
