Stone

Decorative stone and gravel are not landscaping fads.

While we all want great looking lawns, there is a place for using stone and gravel that can make the curb appeal of your home jump out to anyone just driving by.

We offer many different kinds of stone, rock, crushed granite, limestone and gravel.

You can read more about those below. Each of these types of stone offers something different in terms of look for your yard. For instance, washed stones are fantastic for around your house or shrubs. Gravel or limestone is great for driveways and for a base under patio bricks. Screenings and crushed granite are great for making paths that are easy to walk on.

How will you know what you need?

Talk to us first about where you will be placing the stone or gravel. Because it has different uses, we can walk you through the best options. We can then help you determine just how much you will need for your landscaping needs!
