Decorative pebbles are the perfect solution if you are looking for ways to make your garden easier to maintain. If you want to know more, read on for more information.....

There are many reasons why you may be dreaming of a garden that is easier to maintain. Perhaps you are elderly and you find it hard getting about these days? Or maybe you are simply too busy with the demands of a family or a draining job to be able to give your garden the attention it deserves. You should be able to enjoy your garden, but if you are constantly looking at thinking about all of the work that there is to do then you simply won’t be getting the best from it. For many reasons, decorative pebbles may be the solution that you have been looking for and in this article we’ll tell you about their many uses.


We all know just how much maintenance soil in flowerbeds can be. With decorative pebbles, you can take up some or all of the space that the soil occupied with beautiful, eye-catching pebbles instead. This helps to prevent weeds from growing and it significantly reduces the amount of maintenance that your flowerbeds will need. Once they are in place they’ll be there to stay and you won’t be spending all of your time on your knees weeding.


Driveways can be beautifully enhanced with the use of pebbles or decorative gravel. A solid concrete driveway can be dull and boring, but decorative pebbles can turn the most boring of driveways into a sight to behold! You can choose from all sorts of different colours and designs in order to get an eye-catching driveway that will impress your visitors and cause you no extra work.

Children’s Play Areas

If there is an area in your garden that is set aside for your children, then you should seriously consider having bark chippings laid. Not only do these chippings look appealing, but they also provide a safe area on which children can play. They are also a very safe surface to land on should your kids trip up or fall. Again, these are very low maintenance and mowing the lawn will be a thing of the past!

Decorative pebbles are a wonderful way to enhance your garden while making it far easier to maintain at the same time. If you are interested in finding out how they could benefit you then speak to the experts at Stones4Homes – we’ll be happy to help and advise you.
