Getting Landscaping Stones
You can visit a home improvement store that has a garden center to find landscaping stones. You can also find them just about anywhere that sells flowers and plants. You will find bags of landscaping stones that work well for small projects.
If you have a large landscaping project and need a lot of landscaping stones, you can find a company that will deliver them to your property. You can find these landscaping stores at landscaping supply stores or stone yards you may have in your area. In most cases, purchasing landscaping stones from a stone yard or landscaping supply stores will offer you more varieties to choose from. The owner of the store you choose can show you the different varieties and help you choose the right ones for your landscaping projects. They will then deliver them to your property and place the stones where you tell them.
Ways to Use Landscaping Stones
How you use your landscaping stones depends on the variety you choose. Because of this, consider purchasing larger and smaller stones. For larger stones, you can use them as edging around flower gardens. This will make the flower gardens look nice but also prevent weeds and grass from getting into your gardens. You can put an edging along your driveway or walkways.
If you have small landscaping stones, you can use them to make a pathway. You may be surprised at how easy this is to create. First, decide where you want the path then remove all vegetation until you only have soil. Compact the soil and lay a layer of gravel. Over the gravel lay landscaping fabric. The gravel and fabric will prevent your landscaping stones from sinking into the ground. Lay the stones over the fabric and compact them. Put an edging along the path to hold the stones in. You can use metal edging for something inexpensive or put a brick or concrete edging along the path.
