Make a Path

If you want to use stones in your yard to make an impact, but you can’t afford to buy too many of them, you can always fashion a natural path out of flat flagstone or gravel. Stone paths are timeless, beautiful and invite you into the peaceful serenity of your yard.

Plus, there is an almost endless variety of stones and rocks to work with. You can accent the stone path with an edge made from reclaimed wood, or even from small pebbles, which add depth and dimension to an otherwise monotonous look.

Accentuate the Flower Garden

Rocks can be foreboding and overbearing. Adding too many of them to your yard can overwhelm the eye and make the garden look too busy. Remember, a little can go a long way.

You don’t need to purchase much from your local landscape supplier in order to make an impact. Add a few differently-sized and differently-shaped stones to your garden. This can really make the garden pop, especially when the darkness of the rocks is contrasted by a splash of color from your flowers and plants.

Not only does this enhance the look of your garden, but it also gives it layers and dimensions. Mixing rocks with delicate plants brings out the best of both worlds, mimicking nature and giving your yard a lush feel.

Build Retaining Walls

If you don’t have much space in your yard, or you want to make it look fuller and bigger, you can always build up instead of out. The best way to add different depths and varieties to your lawn is to make retaining walls out of stone. This can quite literally elevate an area or add another level to your yard. Planting evergreens and lush garden plants which drape over the wall and stretch high above you can really give a forest-like appearance.

Stone walls are easy to build, and there are a variety of affordable stones provided by your trusted landscape supplier. The next time you shop our selection of stone, keep in mind that you can build a lot with just a little.
