Looking for ways to spruce up your home’s landscaping this fall? Rely on the steadiness of stone. Stone is one of the most attractive and durable materials you can use to upgrade the curb appeal of your home. So it should come as no surprise that stones can make your landscape look that much better too. Here are some fabulous tips for using stones in your landscaping.

Walking Paths

Make it easier to get around once daylight savings time ends and it starts getting darker outside earlier. Using stones, you can create walking paths that connect your door with your garden, and can lead you anywhere around the outside of your home. Stones also provide a variety of aesthetic boosts no matter the type of stone you choose. Paver stones, river stones, and even pebbles all make great choices.

Stacked Barriers

What’s a stacked barrier? It’s simply another way to refer to a retaining wall. Breathe new life into your yard by creating a wall. Flat stones will be best for this idea, since they’re much easier to stack together.

Protecting Plants

Protect your plant beds and other plantings with a well-placed selection of stones. Don’t just settle for plain old dirt or mulch. Your flowers, hedges, and even your trees can all benefit from being paired with stones too.

Fire Features

A ring of stones makes for a simple fire pit. Nothing is better than curling up around a firepit, feeling cozy with blankets, hot chocolate, good friends, and better conversation. Just be sure to choose bigger stones for this particular project.

Stepping Up
