River rock can be used to create a unique fire pit patio area.

One of the best choices for landscaping purposes is river rock, which is available in many different shades and sizes. Using river rock in an area where grass doesn’t grow is an inexpensive way to turn a muddy back yard into a stylish, functional outdoor space!  
Fun Fact: “River rock is the best choice for garden pathways, in planting beds, a Koi pond or similar type of water feature.”


Sand and gravel are inexpensive, natural materials. This type of gravel, what we sometimes refer to as “processed gravel” or “crushed base” gravel, which is a mix of fine sand and gravel that helps compaction, is often used underneath a brick patio or concrete block retaining wall.

For example, the smaller the gravel is, the softer it is underfoot. The most comfortable walking surface would require something like pea gravel that has a smooth texture with rounded edges. Pea gravel is a favorite for use on driveways and playgrounds.

Fun Fact: “Gravel is a natural filter and aids in many types of water purification applications. It can also be used for sewage treatment, such as home septic systems, to separate and filter waste.”

Various sizes and colors of sand and gravel can serve as a background for a rock garden containing boulders and other types and sizes of rocks. Gravel is a particular favorite for making flower garden borders along sidewalks and retaining walls and for backyard play areas. Gravel also makes a good substitute for bark mulch because it absorbs the heat of the sun and keeps the soil cool and moist throughout the summer.
