3 Ways to Incorporate Decorative Stone into Your Landscape

3 Ways to Incorporate Decorative Stone into Your Landscape lehnhoff's supply

Incorporating decorative stone in the right places adds elegance to your landscape at an affordable price.

With many people spending more time outside these days, you may be thinking about changing or upgrading your outdoor space.

DIY upgrades don’t have to break the bank. Incorporating materials like decorative stone in the right places adds elegance to your landscape at an affordable price. Are you unsure of how you would use stone in your outdoor landscape? Here are a few ways to use decorative stone to enhance your landscape.

Design a Unique Walkway

A great way to incorporate decorative stone is in and around walkways. For a simple garden-style walkway, you can use small decorative stones for the entire pathway. While this would not be the best option for a pathway with heavy traffic, it could be a decorative choice for a path through a garden or a small area of your property. In this way, it can serve both aesthetic and functional purposes. 

To enhance functionality, you can also use small decorative stones in between larger stepping stones for some added appeal. This also serves a functional purpose, as cutting grass between larger stepping stones can be quit challenging. Since decorative stone is available in various sizes, shapes, and colors, it can be its own statement on your property.

Gravel Patio

If you want a timeless material for a new patio, decorative stone or gravel is ideal. In order to achieve this, you will need a level area, a space for the material, a weed barrier, and a rake to smooth out the decorative stone. Be mindful of the colors and textures you choose, and consider how the finished surface will look next to your home, garden, or pool. No matter their size, gravel patios are a wonderful extension of your outdoor living space.

Use Decorative Stone as a Mulch Replacement

Another way to incorporate decorative stone is to use it in plant beds instead of mulch. This decision will depend on what plants you have in your garden beds. However, some low-maintenance plants will perform just fine in decorative stone. 

Many homeowners prefer decorative stone because it is so low maintenance. It won’t require regular replacement like mulch and will keep its aesthetic appeal for a long time. Additionally, because stone looks nice on its own, you might not need to fill your plant beds with many flowers.
