One of the most practical and aesthetically pleasing decorative stones is the Buff Mexican Beach Pebble, which tends to be creamy beige to light brown, with some pastel hues. This gift of nature, hand-picked from the beautiful beaches of Baja California, Mexico, has a naturally rounded and smooth finish, making it one of the most attractive and sought after landscaping stones north of the border.
Our most popular size is 1” to 2”, which is ideal for spreading across smaller areas. Larger-sized stones can be embedded in walls and mosaic paving or used as attractive design borders. Our Buff Mexican Beach Cobble is 3” to 5”, while our buff pineapple-size stones are available in 6” to 12”.
While Mexican Beach Pebbles are known for being more uniform in size than other stones, you should always expect some degree of variation in both size and color. After all, we are talking about 100% natural rocks. To better understand the scale and range of sizes that are available, see our Mexican Beach Pebble Sizing Guide.
If you are not sure what size is right for you, consider how you are going to use the stones. The Buff Mexican Beach Pebble has a multitude of applications.
Commonly used as a lawn replacement, Buff Mexican Beach Pebbles can be installed around dry creek beds, desert gardens, and Japanese rock gardens. They are easily spread around trees, and perfectly suited for ground cover, walkways, as well as ponds, patios, and around pools.
The Buff Mexican Beach Pebble not only looks good but it has many benefits. It protects soil from extreme temperatures, saves water, and helps with weed control and soil erosion. Buff Mexican Beach Pebbles are also commonly used by environmentally aware homeowners seeking a water-wise landscape such as a dry-scape, or xeriscape, design.
Inside your home, these elegant stones can be used as candle accents, to fill vases, and to give your living space a sleek, modern look. Painting rocks is a new trend in landscape décor; our smaller-size pebbles are ideally suited for adding a flash of color to planters.
Splash of Color
While Black Mexican Beach Pebbles are, generally speaking, the most popular color for general landscaping, we see differences throughout the nation. For example, in states like New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, and Arizona, homeowners tend to favor the Buff Mexican Beach Pebble, as its yellowish-tan, soft-washed color matches the natural colors of the rugged desert landscape.
The Buff Mexican Beach Pebble is a member of the Mexican Beach Pebble family, which also includes the Black Mexican Beach Pebble, the Red Mexican Beach Pebble, the Mixed Mexican Beach Pebble, as well as the red-orange Sunburst.
Don’t be fooled
Remember, our pebbles are completely natural and unpolished. Lately there’s been an increase in the prevalence of polished beach pebbles, which are often manufactured in China by adding chemicals to the stones. They tend to lose their fake shine within a few weeks, especially if they are placed outdoors.Do-it-yourself home landscapers depend on Online Stone Solutions for our wide selection of natural stones, deep product knowledge, convenience, and value.
