Decorative garden pebbles are among the most popular and versatile landscaping products, and for good reason. Exotic garden pebbles are contemporary, stylish, eco-friendly and affordable, making them a hot new landscaping trend.
Australian homeowners have also really embraced river pebbles as an alternative to garden mulch. This is because they work wonders for suppressing weed growth. Other reasons for their popularity are that decorative garden pebbles have great curbside appeal, don’t need yearly top ups, and provide a fantastic contrast to garden plants.
In saying that, pebbles are so versatile, it would be a sin to use them only for ground cover. You can also combine them with stepping stones to create beautiful garden paths. When added to a retaining wall, river pebbles can make the feature more expressive and interesting.
Some other ways to use decorative garden pebbles is to line the pathways through your yard or add them to your potted plants, outdoor water features or feature walls, fireplace or pool. If you choose the right landscaping pebbles to suit your design, they will add a special touch to your project.
As you can see, there are many ways you can bring the beauty of pebbles into your home. A pebbled floor is a stylish way to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. The natural non-slip nature of pebbles also makes them ideal for bathrooms and stairs.
If we can compare garden pebbles to anything, they’re like that perfect pair of shoes that complete your favourite outfit or the piece of jewellery (or cuff links) that takes your dress or suit to the next level. The right set of pebble stones are just what your garden needs to add a unique and stylish flair to your outdoor oasis.
When it comes to choosing pebbles for your project, one important factor we must discuss is pebble coverage.
As there is no hard science around the shape and size of pebbles, a number of factors must be considered here. These include the coverage area, depth of cover and of course, the shape and size of the pebbles.
While this is a tricky calculation, we have taken the guesswork out for you by doing some experiments at our Armstone headquarters in Glebe. Basically by laying enough pebbles on a square meter, we generated an accurate formula that you can use. Though we believe that it is accurate as can be, please note that it is still only an estimate and therefore, still not 100% foolproof.
In saying this, whether you opt for garden pebbles or river pebbles, be assured that you are selecting a landscaping material that is affordable, eco-friendly, and relatively low maintenance.
