Enhance Your Landscaping With Stone Products

Landscaping and gardening are about so much more than simply planting flowers or vegetables; they’re also about creating an aesthetically pleasing location to relax in and enjoy. Stone products are the perfect way to accent the work that you’re doing with your plants. To find out more about your options and how to use stone products, look no further than this helpful guide.

Why Are Stone Products a Landscaping Essential?

Stones and rocks can actually replace mulch in your garden if you’re looking for something different this season. The durability of rocks can far outlast that of wood mulch, giving you a layer of protection for your garden for years to come. Not only that, but the brightness of rocks like our Delaware River Rocks or our White #57’s can brighten up dark corners of your landscape. Red #57’s can also give your garden a beautiful pop. Their reddish color compliments natural green tones to bring out more beauty from your flowers and plants. Something important to note when working with rocks and gravel in your garden is that you should use some kind of weed barrier that you can pin down to help keep your garden looking its best as a primary layer.

What Other Applications Do Rocks and Gravel Have for Your Yard?

If you’re looking to add a path or an area to congregate in, rocks and gravel could provide a fantastic solution. All you need to do is dig a shallow pathway that you plan to fill. You only need to go a few inches deep. This is a great option for Maryland yards because rocks and gravel won’t react poorly to our harsh winters. One of the most important aspects of creating your gravel or rock pathway is a compact base. You can use some of our stone dust or masonry sand to create this. Once this layer is laid, place a layer of landscaping fabric on top of this to keep it solid. You will also need edges for your materials to complete the framework for your new pathway. Your edges can be constructed from a wide variety of materials from brick to wooden planks, as long as they are structurally sound. Once the framework is laid for your new pathway, all you need to do is lay your gravel or rocks.
