Incorporate Stone Into These 3 Landscaping Ideas This Spring

Spring is upon us, so you are probably itching to get your landscaping well on its way to curb appeal-enhancing status. Natural stone can provide the finished look your landscape needs and is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. At Garrity Stone, Inc., we have a wide selection of stones, such as boulders, flagstone, and gravel, for various projects. We’ll share just three ideas to get your landscaping ready to shine with our natural stone products.

Natural Stone Landscaping

1. Stone Around the Base of Your Downspouts 

Gutters and downspouts divert rainwater away from your house. By incorporating stone around the base of your downspouts, you can also help divert the water away from your landscaping. This is an especially useful solution if your downspouts sit atop a bed of mulch, which could be carried away with the water. Multi-colored river rock would make an excellent choice.

2. A Stone Border Around Your Landscaping

If you have landscaping elements, like flowers and shrubs, along the perimeter of your house, you can create a stone border around them. Lining flower beds and mulched landscaping areas with a border of stone, such as small boulders, will help keep the soil and mulch confined to where it should be. Not only would a border look nice and create visual interest, but it would also serve a purpose.

3. Stone Around the Perimeter of Your Pond

Whether you have a pond on your property or have plans to create one, natural stone can help define the edges to separate water from grass. Stone is a versatile addition to this type of project and can be used as a boundary, wall, or waterfall around your pond. Natural stone and water just go hand in hand, working together to make a beautiful outdoor oasis.
