Several materials are used to spruce up a landscape. Crushed stone is a durable material and can be a great ground cover for xeriscapes or rock gardens. Placing landscape fabric between the stone, soil surface and edging material offers the best benefits of crushed stone and reduces the maintenance necessary after installation.
Here’s a few different types of crushed stone to use in landscaping:
Natural material made of fine rock and minerals. It is identified by being thinner than gravel and rougher than silt. It is mostly used for making concrete and as a paving base.
Various sizes of rocks and stones from 2” up to 12”. Use as layered rock that along garden beds and walkways. The cobble stone rocks can also be cemented in place to form walkways.
Stone that is washed from ¾” fine chips of rock and stone. Some are found in streams. It is typically used on water features, walkways, to make dry creek beds, edging for plant beds, and water features.
Small round stones used in concrete. Also good fore driveways, walkways, and in home aquariums. Good for use in plant beds and pathways.
Use mulch to add to conserving your soil and improve the health of your plants and flowers. Apply it on top of the soil to improve drainage and moisture.
Road base material. Places a hard surface for places such as floors for parking pad, outdoor shed or as a base for patios and flagstone walks.
