Pebbles are a cheap and low maintenance way to add decorative features to your garden. They are available in a range of colours and sizes and when used with stones, gravel and pavers can really transform your garden and give it a high end landscaped appeal. Here are some ways in which pebbles, gravel and decorative stone can be used to upscale your garden.
Line a path with pebbles to make it appear bigger, provide a transition between the steps and the plants and keep the plants from growing in between the steps.
Patterned contrasting stones and pebbles make an effective alternative to flower beds and require almost no maintenance. A few scattered shrubs or bushes add some greenery.
Another good example of contrasting stones and pebbles used to create a flower bed. The potted plants are used to effectively add height to the garden decor.
Place dark pebbles in the bottom of a pond or water feature to add texture and character to an otherwise dull surface.
Use gravel or shale to fill the gaps between paving stones for a more complete and professional looking pathway.
Create a pebble drainage channel from you gutter downspout to channel water out of your beds and keep the mulch in place.
Create a feature transition area between your patio and pool or patio and grass with paving slabs and white pebbles.
