Creative ideas and uses for pebbles
Be eco-friendly in the garden
Pebbles can be used as an interior or exterior mulch to suppress weeds, protect the soil and retain soil moisture (when applied over already moist soil). Either place them straight on a garden bed or gently inside a plant pot. In addition to its functionality, pebbles dress up a pot and off-set shapely greenery.
Decorate the driveway
Pebbles can be used to create a simple informal driveway. They can be used on their own or around pavers for a fresh and modern look.
Put in a pathway
Decorative pebbles or stones can be used as an attractive ground cover, creating an immediate pathway or walkway in your front or backyard.
Use pavers or slabs in combination with pebbles to create interest and harmony through a combination of the rough with the smooth. Use pavers with smooth surfaces and straight edges laid in straight lines to create a slick layout. Contrast this with the rough, organic texture of soft gravel or pebbles laid in between.
Enhance a wet area
Given their natural source, pebbles naturally complement pool areas, water features, ponds and other wet areas.
Increase the interest in your interiors
Pebbles can be used as a feature or exciting design on a kitchen or bathroom wall. Pebbles can be fixed to vertical surfaces with adhesives and provide a wonderful textured finish. They can also be laid in grout to make a hardwearing textured floor surface.
Make a splash
Pebbles can be added as a decorative accent to brighten up centerpieces on tables, vase arrangements, candle displays or to add extra dimension to a fireplace.
Pebbles can be used to add depth and interest to garden decor and arts and crafts projects. You can even add them to your indoor décor – table or counter tops – to create a more contemporary feel.
