When you are looking to add a certain character to your garden, there is nothing quite like the stunning effect that you can get from quality garden rocks.
Your garden gives you a natural canvas where you can show your creative side. With the placement of specific flowers and plants and special elements like a sculpture or water feature, you have the chance to bring a dream garden to life.
With the right combination of other gifts from Mother Nature, such as rocks, pebbles, bark and timber, that garden can be a picture that pleases the senses and gives you a mix of peace and inspiration.
There is something unique about the power of rocks and a variety of other borders that frame the picture of your yard.
It can be an expensive and time consuming exercise to build a drainage system for your garden, especially where you experience regular heavy rains. Water build-up and drainage problems can severely hamper the health and growth of your plants.
There are a number of ways that rocks and pebbles can help with your water drainage. One of the most effective ways is to avoid the problems that come with water building up, especially in darker areas of your garden. You may experience dangerous and slippery paths and walkways, mould growth and create a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests.
The great thing about having quality garden rocks is that you get the benefits of an eco-friendly solution that helps with drainage and allows you to frame your plants in a stunning way.
The beauty you can bring to your home and garden with rocks and pebbles is matched by the many uses at your disposal.
Smaller pebbles are not only great for drainage, but they are also an ideal solution for garden paths and can be used for filling between pavers to larger rocks.
Rocks are incredibly durable especially when it comes to the harsh Australian climate with the variables in prolonged heat, searing sunlight, and torrential rain.
In comparison, garden mulch needs to be replaced every few years or when it is washed away. Rocks, on the other hand, are extremely durable and can last for years or even a lifetime. They also create a barrier against weeds, smother unwanted plant growth and give protection for your established plants from the takeover of invasive species.
Crushed rocks can be used for a variety of different garden projects including as a paving base or for your driveway. They can be combined with crusher dust to form a solid, compacted surface and then can be graduated to looser screenings or scoria to allow for better drainage.
