River rock is one of the most popular landscape materials.


What is landscaping rock?

River rocks often look different from one another. Some are a lot bigger than others while others are pebble sized. We carry both. River rock can be blue, green, red, pink, orange, coral, slate gray, or any combination of colors. They can also have stripes, spots and striations. The one thing that river rocks have in common is that they have a softly rounded shape and a smooth finish. This look is what makes them so popular with landscapers.

River Rock

River rocks are formed when water currents smooth and shape the rocks over time. This gives them an almost shaped and polished by hand look and makes them harder for little hands to get scraped on.

Some river rocks even look like gems or precious stones. All of this is what makes them so popular with landscapers like you. To enjoy their beauty even more consider adding them to your water project. Here are some ideas of how to use these in your back yard.
