Tackle Some Springtime Gardening Projects That Use Stones


Springtime gardening projects can incorporate decorative stones that will draw attention to a new flowering plant or shrub. A landscape stone supplier features beach pebbles, quartz pieces, gravel, and many other stone varieties that can be delivered directly to your residence. 

Stone Additions

Stone additions support increased drainage. They can also be used to accent one or more parts of your yard. Stone products include artificial stones and manmade ones. Stone types can be mixed together. Combining two or more stone types together will support adding a colorful border around new greenery that you will be planting this year.

Stones will protect soil that is prone to erosion. They will also prevent thermal heat loss from the ground. Using stones when landscaping is an affordable way to improve the health of your plants, plus increase the aesthetical value of your property.

Stone Product Considerations

  • weight
  • color
  • texture
  • quantity
  • weather resistance

An Assessment

Prepare a list of the gardening projects that you will be tackling this spring. Write down the plant species that you will be adding to your yard. Include details about existing plants, trees, and shrubs that you would like to focus on while you are gardening. There are many ways that you can incorporate landscape stones into your proposed gardening projects.

Shopping Tips

During your shopping trip, it can be helpful to use pictures of plants to help you decide which stones to purchase. Use your cellphone to capture some pictures of the plants, trees, and other types of vegetation that you will be adding stones around.

Bring your phone with you to a local stone supplier. Compare the pictures on your phone against the stone varieties that are being sold. If a plant has flowering blooms on it, you may want to focus on the color of the blooms and purchase a stone variety that is a similar color.

Delivery Details

A retailer that offers a delivery service will schedule a time to have the stones dropped off to your residence. You can coincide the delivery with the status of your gardening projects. If you would like to complete some preliminary gardening steps, prior to having the stones dropped off, schedule the delivery after you have completed the alternate landscaping steps.

All of the stone products that you have purchased will remain bagged separately from one another. Once the delivery driver drops off your purchases, you can immediately use them to create interesting borders on your property.

Beautiful Landscaping Can Transform the Look of Any Home

When my husband and I bought our house years ago, we thought it would be our "starter" home and we would move in a few years. We soon had two children, and we then decided against moving since we live in a great school district and we love our neighbors. However, I was growing very tired of the appearance of our home. We painted it a different color, and it still seemed like the "same old house" that we were tired of. We finally deciding that maybe good landscaping would "do the trick" and make our home more enjoyable to use again. We were right, and I now love our home! I now love spending time in our yard and just enjoying the scenery. I have such a passion for landscaping now I decided to create a blog about it. I plan to share many landscaping tips, so come back!
