Using stones to landscape your property can really make it stand out as well as protect it. There are many types of beautifully colored stones that come in many different shapes, sizes and textures to fit any of your needs.
Stones add a texture and a contrast to your yard. They are durable and do not require very much or any maintenance. You can choose from crushed gravel, river rock, or cobble stone. They also come in many different shapes and colors. Whichever floats your boat!
Retain Moisture in Soil
Having stones in your garden will maintain moisture in the soil. It will even retain the moistness around the plants so you will not have to water as much
Stop Weeds from Growing
Having the proper base and depth of stones will also prevent bald spots and weeds from growing. I mean, who likes weeds? I remember when I was a kid my parents would make me pull weeds and I hated it. It's hard work and back breaking. Who needs that?!?!
Stones will allow for needed drainage around plants. Water will not build up around the roots and will allow for air to get in so the plants can breathe. the water can cut off the air supply to the microorganisms that live in healthy soil. It can cause root rot or other diseases.
