Appealing because of their natural brightness and neutral color, white landscaping rocks can work well in a variety of landscaping designs, and they’re perfect for everything from French drains to gardens, pathways, and borders. With white pebble rock, landscaping can be a uniquely creative process. These landscaping accessories definitely look good when first put into place, but they can get dirty when it rains or they’re exposed to dust, leaves, yard clippings, and other materials. Luckily, there are some ways to clean your white landscaping rocks to keep them looking great.

Use a Leaf Rake for Light Cleanings

For times when your white landscaping rocks are covered with leaves or similar materials, use a leaf rake. What you’re doing here is just lightly brushing the rake across the top to get rid of anything the rake can catch. If there are only a few areas with leaves and other things of this nature, you can always do spot cleaning by hand to save time.

Give the Decorative Rocks a Good Spray with a Garden Hose

If there’s widespread dirt and debris on your decorative rocks, pull out the garden hose. When you do, be careful with how you set the spray pressure and apply the water so you won’t have to spend a lot of time rearranging your stones. Hose off white landscaping rocks by using a lighter or lower setting. Lightly spray the decorative rocks by angling the hose so you’re not directly applying excess pressure. 

Lastly, spray the areas directly around the decorative rocks. This makes the entire area look cleaner and brighter. Hosing off your landscaping rocks also gives you a chance to look for any potential drainage issues below or around your decorative stones.

Do a More Thorough Cleaning when Necessary

There are times when it’s best to do a more involved cleaning to spruce up your white pebbles and landscaping rocks. You shouldn’t have to do this too often. However, you may want to be more thorough with your cleaning just as summer starts and again around the time when fall arrives. This is the type of cleaning that begins with scooping up the decorative rocks. Complete the cleaning process by:

• Placing the decorative rocks into buckets
• Using a wire mesh screen that can be placed over a wheelbarrow
• Putting small batches of the decorative rocks on the screen so you can gently shake them back and forth to get rid of loose soil, dirt, and debris
• Spraying the decorative rocks with a hose at higher pressure once you put them back into the buckets.

Another option is to make a homemade mesh screen with hardware cloth stapled to a wood frame. If you prefer to forego the wheelbarrow altogether, another way to do this type of cleaning is to leave the decorative rocks in the buckets and add a mixture of warm water and mild detergent. Let the decorative rocks sit for a few hours before dumping out the dirty water. Finally, allow your clean and bright decorative stones to dry first before putting them back into place.
