Using pebbles in your landscaping can make your garden in Holiday, FL, look more visually appealing. You can use pebbles to fill an empty space and give it character. Since they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, the possibles of what you can do with pebbles are limitless. Here are five creative ways to use pebbles in your landscaping:
Do you have an eroding pathway or part of the lawn you don’t like? You can add pebbles to cover the area for an instant facelift. If the area has foot traffic, use 20-30mm pebbles with 50-70mm depth of coverage for best results.
Drains and grates can negatively impact the look of your garden. As easy way to cover them and add color is to cover them with pebbles. Not only will they add aesthetic appeal, but they will also retain the garden’s drainage capabilities.
You can use pebbles as mulch in garden beds. Pebbles can protect the soil from sunlight, erosion and weeds, and they can last a lifetime. Pebble mulch works best for native and arid gardens where you don’t need composted organics.
