Jan 8, '21
If you're one of the 67.4% of Americans that is proud to own property, you likely are always looking for new ways to make your space more appealing to both yourself and guests. Incorporating a DIY stone garden in your outdoor living space is a great way to express your individual taste and make a statement.

Here, we're going to talk about some ways that you can make an awesome stone bed for your yard. Read on to improve the overall aesthetic of your garden as easily and quickly as possible!

Textured Pebbles

Texture in design schemes is always engaging for viewers because it makes a space unique. It appeals to both the sense of sight and touch because it appears grounded in our 3D reality. As a result, textured stones in multiple varieties are the perfect way to spruce up your space.

You can stick to one texture if you're going to a specific singular aesthetic. For example, those who want to add some sophistication to a waterfall area or a pond may prefer smooth pebbles. Others who want more a natural appearance may prefer jagged stones with sharper edges.

However, you should always feel free to mix and match. This will make your rock garden extremely unique and interesting!

Gorgeous Colors

Color is also important to creating a DIY rock garden. Calming Aqua Beach Pebbles are beautiful and go nicely with cool-colored garden decor. Blue flowers and twisting green foliage complement these watery rocks perfectly and make your yard appear as a safe space to relax and de-stress.

On the flip side, you can use pink, red, orange, or yellow stones to make your yard appear invigorating and energizing. This is especially great for those who like to exercise outside and socialize with friends and family outdoors.

Fire Pit Style Lava Rock

One of the best and most unique types of stone that you can incorporate in your garden is lava rock. These porous and visually appealing stones have an interesting rough texture. Reminiscent of a fire pit on a warm summer night, they are a great way to start a conversation with guests.

Since fire-pit rocks are also black, they go with literally any color scheme that you can dream up!

Fine Decomposed Granite

If you're a fan of small stones that make up softer pathways, you might like decomposed granite. This finely-ground stone is perfect for lining paths from one part of your garden to another. It also is ideal for sprinkling around different beds of flowers and framing your arrangements.

California Gold is one of our favorite colors because it looks natural while having a unique brightness. It brings out the yellows and oranges of your favorite sunflowers, marigolds, and more. The hue also contrasts nicely with green foliage, so it's very versatile.
