Gardens with decorative aggregates tend to require much less maintenance than other gardens. No longer will you have to spend your weekends digging flower beds or mowing the lawn. It will save you a great deal of time and effort. Your free time is extremely valuable, and now you can spend more of it enjoying your garden rather than working in it.

Although it might seem a large amount of money to spend on one project, decorative aggregates are actually a lot cheaper than many other landscaping projects. What's more, you'll save yourself money in the long run as you won't have to pay for any upkeep of your garden or spend money on plant foods, fertilizers or other such items.

Decorative aggregate can be used in a lot of different ways and is extremely flexible. Use bark chippings to create a little adventure playground for your kids or grandkids in the back garden, or make a path or driveway with some pebbles or gravel. Use them to line a pond or fill a flower pot. The options are seemingly endless.
