When developing your landscape design, don’t forget that rocks and stones can make great accents.

Smaller rocks like pea gravel or crushed stone are great for lining paths. Medium-sized rocks can be arranged to create edging for landscape beds.

You can set broad, flat rocks like flagstone into a bed of crushed stone and sand. You’ll end up with a Florida-Friendly patio that’s attractive and also allows water to drain.

And finally, don’t forget to think of rocks as art. Big rocks set on their own in landscape beds make lovely sculptural accents.

No matter what type you choose, rocks are landscape elements that can last you a lifetime!
