Common Uses for Your Decorative Rock in Edmonton
Not sure what to do with the decorative rock on your Edmonton property? Choosing the right decorative rock comes down to not only appearances like colour and texture, but also how it will be used. Will the area get a lot of foot traffic? Will irrigation be an issue? These are a few factors to consider. Of the decorative rock we carry, here are some popular ones and their benefits and common uses:
Ball Diamond Shale
Red or tan ball diamond shale or aggregate is most often used for ball fields. It offers good drainage, cuts maintenance costs, makes the space safer for players thanks to better traction and reduces glare.
Pea gravel is made up of small, round rock that is inexpensive and readily available for areas around patios and pathways. It can also be used for filling in between flagstones or other pavers. Simply weeding regularly and ensuring the gravel stays within its barrier is all the maintenance you need.
Limestone is versatile and can be used on decorative trim around your garden. It is long-lasting, strong and dense with little pore spaces which helps it withstand abrasion and the cycle of freezing and thawing. Limestone is cost-effective and ages well, making it a perfect investment.
Larger than pea gravel, river rock is smooth and come in various colours and sizes. You can make a dry creek bed out of them or use them to help with drainage in your yard. Weed often, use a blower to remove leaves and other debris and consider installing landscape fabric under your river rock to keep the heavier stones from settling into your soil.
