Landscape makeover requires great financial investments, but there is one durable and versatile element to add your garden a finished look. Of course, it is stone, a natural material, which is not obligatory bought in the store, and there is a variety of rocks and stones available in close proximity to every house. There is a wonderful chance to organize a real stone garden behind your house.
Stone garden is a very beautiful area that does not require additional care or special maintenance. Stone can be used for pathways, small fences, and different garden figures. They even can be hand-made as stones are easily painted and keep their form if placed right. You can even build a real terrace made of stone or furniture for your garden. Rocks and stones are indispensable for wet areas as they are not influenced by water and look great in ponds, fountains or artificial waterfalls. It is also important to choose the right stone as river rocks or pebbles add warmth, while marble chips can lighten some shady areas. Black lava rocks are used in modern minimalistic designs, and flat stones of terracotta color remind a tropical garden. A large stone of unique shape can become a centerpiece of the garden and set the pace for other makeovers.
Another alternative to more sizable stones in the stone garden is gravel. It is produced in a variety of colors, forms and sizes, so many designers find a place for it in their landscaping ideas. It is perfect for paving, making borders, water embankment, laying out paths and many other functions. Stone garden is a chance to create an eye-catching and attractive adornment to your garden that is easy to care about and very long-lasting.
