Garden with lawn, cobblestone path and stone wall.

The naturally aged look of rocks adds structure to your design all year round and builds a link between an artificial environment and the natural world. You can use these raw materials to make beautiful things that fit a wide range of design ideas, from dramatic, jagged structures to smooth finishes.

Landscaping Rocks are Versatile

Pebbles are one of the most versatile landscaping materials. You can use them to accent plants and trees in your yard or make new things like water features and paver walkways. The following ideas will inspire beautiful gardens incorporating rocks.

Ideas for Landscaping with Rocks

Knowing how to apply this landscaping material is crucial. Different rocks have different uses. You may need to learn where to start if you are new to gardening. Once you settle on a landscaping project, feel free to question Green Landscape Supply’s professionals.

Walkways and Edging
Use rocks, pebbles or stones as a border for your walkways or flower beds to make a beautiful focal point in your garden. Stone edging is inexpensive, easy to install and offers great design freedom.
Drainage
Cover external under-drains with stones and pebbles to enhance their aesthetic value and functionality. A layer of tiny rocks placed over plant soil can also help conserve water by keeping the soil cooler and providing shade.
Planters
Strong metal baskets filled with stone, called gabion planters, can be used to create a unique stonework feature in your garden. They are lovely because you can make them in almost any shape you want.
Mulch Replacement
When designing your garden, you can use mulch, but try switching things up with rocks instead. This application can highlight the garden, flowers or shrubs you have always admired. Plus, mulch landscaping requires redoing every season, while stone can stay in place all year long, making it easier and cheaper for you in the long run.
Pebble Inlays
Pebbles—also called decorative aggregates—add color, texture and interest to your pavement designs. They soften hardscaping. Filling crevices between paving slabs with pebbles can add a subtle touch.

The Ideas are Endless

Rock may be used in so many ways in landscaping that it is impossible to run out of design options. Other great ideas include using stone to make a fire pit or fountain or to line the border of a pond.

  • Jon B.

    Wanted to add top dressing to my lawn and stopped by to get some basic facts before starting. The team was so helpful to answer my many questions and made me feel comfortable to move forward with project. Stopped by a few weeks later with a u-haul and was all loaded up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Very helpful and inviting team. I might have them deliver next time, seems it's much easier and it can be dropped off on my driveway in those huge plastic bags - wife likes that Idea, and keeps me from unloading the truck on my own

    We undertook a major landscaping project spanning 2018-2019. It includes stabilizing a foundation wall, construction of retaining walls, redirecting drainage, raised flowerbeds, and completely redoing the lawn. It requires multiple truckloads of stone, sand, fill dirt and topsoil. We saved a few dollars, but more importantly, the quality of the products ordered were unequaled. It was the best experience in getting exactly what and how much we needed that we had in the 30Y we've been here.

  • Ben J.

    Holy Cow! Super fast and friendly service having some gravel delivered. Person taking order on phone and driver very friendly. Feel I got a very fair price on material as well. Will be back.

  • Joshua J.

    When every other landscaping nursery was out of sod these guys had it. Felt very much like a family business. Not a lot frills here, but none are needed for a landscaping business. For my next project I might just have to drive past the other 3 nurseries to get here.

  • Tessa H.

    The only place I will go from now on! John was very kind and so helpful! Even though my job was really small, I was treated with so much respect and personal care that I will not being going anywhere else for my landscape needs in the future. They have a massive selection and their customer service is outstanding.
