How to Use Pebbles in Your Spring Flower Garden
A great way to make the most of your time at home is to get digging in the garden. You can completely redo your flowerbeds by planting your favorite spring flower seeds and decorating with stylish pebbles and stones. With a little bit of creativity, come summer you’ll find yourself smiling just a little more as you stroll among your flower garden.
Here’s how you can get started!
Plan out your landscape design
When landscaping with pebbles, you’ll want to sit down and come up with a plan. Go outside and survey the soil, size and current plant types in your flowerbed. Clean it up, removing weeds or dead plants, then decide if you will change the size of your bed or keep it the same.
Do you have a color scheme? Choose your favorite spring flowers and coordinate them with your favorite garden pebbles. Landscape stones come from beaches all over the world, so you can find a wide variety of natural earthy hues to accommodate your taste.
The best way to use pebbles
Durable and strong against even the harshest elements, you can get as creative as you want with your backyard pebbles without worry. Turn your flowerbed into a spring butterfly garden and draw out a stepping path made up of pebbles that gently meanders through the bed.
Perhaps you have a container garden on your patio. You can layer the top of your potted plants with pebbles to cover soil and exposed roots. You can even use pebbles to line your vegetable rows, so it’s easy to keep the different varieties organized.
Decorative garden pebbles benefit your plants
Pebbles are more than just a pretty way to enhance your garden design. They can be used in place of mulch to help the soil around your flowers maintain moisture. Pebbles can also slow down soil erosion caused from watering. What makes pebbles a better choice than mulch is the fact that they will never break down or need to be replaced frequently. They make your spring flower bed look charming all while offering your new seedlings the extra support they need to flourish.
