Why use landscaping stones?

Using landscaping stones in your design can produce a pure natural beauty to your yard, full of texture, color and provide a focal point.

You can use landscaping stones to accent certain portions of your yard, give it depth, you can even plant some plants to make it look more natural. They look great round the patio and the fence and you can even get colored landscaping stones to bring more color into your yard. This kind of color is especially nice to have in winter when everything is so bare and cold looking. The fact of the matter is that you can transform the whole look of your yard with the simple use of landscaping stones. They are like jewelry for the yard.

There are many different kinds of landscaping stones and they come in all shapes and sized. The landscaping stones that are right for you will depend on the effect that you are trying to create with your yard. You can get a wide variety of colors for your landscaping stones and in some cases you may want to mix a couple of colors together to create a whole new and interesting look and add balance to your entire garden.

You can get landscaping stones at your local gardening center and even some home building stores will carry them. Shop around and find the landscaping stones that suit your home and your needs best before you make a purchase.

Beautiful photo's Rain, I especially like the first one....we are trying to address a slope in our yard and that might be a good solution.

Rain,  I had no idea you had so much stone work at your home.  It is no wonder you are always so busy there!  Congrats also on hitting 500 blog mark shortly after this one I believe.  Mark
