A landscape with rocks is very decorative and popular with many gardeners. You may not want to create an actual rock garden, but you like the idea of combining the rock with plants and other elements in your garden to create and structure the space however you like. Gravel, stones and other small rocks can all be used to decorate the garden. Pebbles are not only ideal for creating garden paths, but also for removing annoying weeds, and they do not disturb trees and shrubs. If you want to build a garden fountain, stream or pond, you will need a pond liner and gravel. Polished or black stones can also look very attractive.
