Using Rock Beds on Your Property

Posted by George Hohman

river-rock-beds.jpgRiver rocks, as applied in landscaping projects, are stones that come in a wide variety of colors and sizes. Their common trait is a softly rounded shape and smooth finish. Unlike rocks dug from the earth (which can be chunky and rough), river rocks have been worn down by water currents over time. This gives them a more pleasing appearance, almost as if they were shaped by hand.

One of the great things about using river rock as a landscaping supply, is the variety you'll enjoy. As you can see by the picture above, these stones come in many different sizes and colors.

The rocks vary based on the location where they were found, and many other factors. River rock beds can be installed along walkways or entrances that have been damaged by salt burn or vehicles running over curbs. When you install rock beds it will improve your property's appearance!
