2020 Garden Material Trend: Landscape Pebbles

Have you thought about revitalizing your garden with landscape pebbles?   The winter months are a great time to reflect on what you type of garden atmosphere you want to spend time in.  As you look around your yard, there are undoubtedly areas that could be improved.  Is there uncovered ground, lack of hydrated greenery or areas that could use a make-over? As you look to utilizing the outdoor spaces on your property, think of enhancing your desired aesthetic with natural-looking beach pebbles, cobbles, and polished pebbles to create your own private oasis.

 

Coverage, Borders, & Accents

Landscape pebbles are an excellent choice of material to cover exposed ground areas that have become exposed due to erosion or have become overgrown with weeds.  Pebbles provide for easy replacement of unkempt lawns as they can be spread evenly over landmass or built up to create visually appealing layers.   They can also deter stubborn weeds by smothering their growth.  Pebble and Cobble materials can be a great way to transform deteriorating corners by reviving these unsightly areas with inspired borders. Cobbles can be used to edge different areas or to create meandering pathways that twist and turn to invite you into your outdoor environment.

Hydration, Moisture & Drainage

An important, and often overlooked, the benefit of contributing to hardscapes with pebbles and cobblestones pertains to saving water.  Many property owners have been leaning towards creating more sustainable landscape designs in order to conserve water.  This does not mean that you have to forego greenery, but be mindful of its implementation.  In addition to selecting flowers, shrubs, trees, and plants that require less H20, strong drainage and hydration plan using rocks not only keeps beds neat but help provide coverage of mulch and soil to further protect plants from losing moisture.  Installing natural pebbles around the base of trees, in potted plants, and in flower beds can help retain moisture as well as reduce the need for overwatering.
