Pebbles and stones - why use them in your garden?

Here at Greenscapes we love the colour and texture our garden stones and pebbles can create in your garden. Garden stones/pebbles are one of the most beautiful and versatile natural materials you can use for your garden. They’re the perfect accompaniment to plants, trees, pavers and can even be used as standalone elements to create texture, colour and draw interest to your yard.


Garden stones/pebbles are also practical. They can be used to assist with drainage, create structure and help a garden look more established.


Pebbles make wonderful decorative elements and help restore water in the soil that is exposed to the sun. They also prevent soil erosion and preserve the roots of plants.

Stone pebble paths can be used as walkways and decorative pebbles can replace the mulch.


Landscaping pebbles are very on-trend at the moment. So much so that landscape gardeners are using them to replace paving, surfacing paths and driveways and even creating mosaics out of them! We simply can’t get enough of pebbles and how much character they’re adding to homes in the Waikato.


We have a variety of stones/pebbles at our yard check out our website for more details but here’s some of our favourites…
