5 Gravel and Stone Types for a Rock Landscape

Give your garden design some textural bam with pebbles, granite, river rocks and other stone for your rock landscape.

by Jenny Peterson

I love rock in the garden, but I particularly love gravel and other small rocks. I work them into nearly every design I create for my clients, as well as in my own landscape. Why the love affair with gravel? It serves many purposes, from solving drainage issues to lending textural appeal; it crunches under your feet; and it comes in many different colors and forms. Check out my favorites and see which one will work for you in your landscape.
