How to Use Garden Pebbles for Creative DIY Projects

Published by Armstone

Contemporary, stylish, and eco-friendly, repurposed landscaping pebbles are a hot trend for creating a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor sp૎s. Try these fabulous, budget friendly DIY projects to bring the natural chic and serenity of pebbles into your home.

Over the last decade or two, Australian homeowners have really taken to using river pebbles as an alternative to garden mulch. Pebbles have great curbside appeal, don’t need topping up every year, and provide a fantastic contrast to garden plants. Pebbles are also so versatile that it’s almost a sin to use them solely as ground cover.

Pebbles make great garden paths…

Across the threshold, there are a number of ways you can bring the beauty of stone into your home. A pebbled floor is a stylish way to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. As well as providing a variation in texture for interior spaces, the natural, non-slip surface of pebbles is ideal for bathrooms and stairs.
