Ready to rock!
When it comes to a quick fix, a focal point or just a way to amuse yourself for a couple of hours, you can’t go past rocks. Or if you’re not into carrying heavy things, stones.
If you don’t have any on-site, you can buy them at a landscape supplier for not too much money. That way you can also pick and choose your colours, shapes and sizes, and you don’t have to dig them out of the ground and clean them. They’re an easy way of adding a focal point to the garden or dressing up something which lacks that jenesaisquoi.
The row of small stones laid alongside the pavers lifts an otherwise nondescript pathway out of the ordinary, while the gang of lovely round rocks adds a sculptural touch and stops people falling off the deck.
