What’s the best way to use stone to create landscape borders?
Landscape borders create the finished touch to your gardens and outdoor design. Not only are they beautiful, they also prevent mulch and the nutrient rich soil from washing away during irrigation and foul weather.
There is a wide variety of materials available to use for creating borders. Natural stone has become a popular choice for creating landscape borders and is available in many sizes and colors.
• Stones: River rock can be placed around the edge of flower beds to help define the area. Dig a small trench around the bed and lay 3 inches of river rock around the edge to create a border.
• Natural Stone: Natural stone comes in a variety of types, sizes, and colors. There are styles and sizes to fit your needs and budget. You can choose boulders, flagstone, Black Regency, castle rock, and Mojave Thin just to name a few. To create a border using natural stone, begin with a small trench around the bed and lay the stone around the edge. You can pile flat stones on top of each other to build up the border.
