Landscape Rock And Gravel Types For A Stunning Landscape

Jul 30

Mulch or plants are the best steps to take when beautifying your garden. Both options are worthy of full support. What if you could save money on maintenance and water in the process of making use of gravel and stones in your landscape? Processed stone CT is excited to share with you some of our favorite ways to incorporate stone and gravel for hardscapes to add color, texture, and practicality.

What is the most suitable rock to use for landscaping?

There are two kinds of decomposed granites:

Sand and brownish red decomposed granite can give landscapes an earthy, rustic vibe. This inexpensive solution is great for trees, garden trails, and xeriscape groundcover.

In the second place is Pea Gravel.

As the name suggests, pea gravel is pea-sized, with sizes ranging from 1/4-1/8 inches in diameter. Brown, white, and brown are just a few shades that can be found. Peas gravel is a great choice for various applications, including paver roads and filling in gaps between pavers. Mulch is decomposed, but it is not a decomposition material.


Granite Gravel Crushed

This gravel has larger particles than decomposed Granite, providing your yard a natural appearance and being less expensive than other gravel options. This artwork makes it easy to transition between gardens and paths.


Rocks of Lava

The rock is made of volcanic lava, and its stunning colors make it a stunning addition to any landscape. Dried-out areas will benefit from its capacity to absorb heat during the day and release it at night. Due to its lightweight, lava rocks make it easy to move and spread.

River Rock

Beautiful scenery can still be found even if your home is away from a river. Pea gravel on the other side is rougher and is less large. Combining the crushed stone CT shades can create a stunning garden border or dry stream bed. They can also be used to drain water from the foundation of your home.



This fight will not be without weapons. Flagstones and larger rocks are a great way to build pathways between landscaping features, like garden paths or climbing stones.

Brick chips

In being against the grain, we're talking about making an extreme change. This one isn’t rocking but many people use it in hardscapes. There's a range of shades to pick from for brick chips, including reddish and brown colors. They're great for driveways and walks.


Chips of Marble

Please take your countertops off the floor.

Marble does not have to be used in the kitchen. The marble chips are a great option to cover the soil in pots and as landscaping design features. It's recommended to keep them out of plants that require high acid levels as marble changes soil pH.

You can design a range of landscaping designs using gravel and stones like elegant courtyards or rustic paths. Our experts in stone CT can assist you in selecting the appropriate rock to complement your décor.
