Beach Pebbles - Decorative Rocks
Category Landscape Rock
Various landscaping trends gain a foothold and get a lot of attention now and then. This is what’s been happening lately with hearty, water-containing plants known as succulents. Due to the many appealing characteristics of these living landscape elements, they tend to work well with decorative rocks. Here are some options and ideas to consider with decorative rocks and succulents if you prefer to embrace this trend.

Create Succulent Borders

One possibility with decorative rocks and succulents is to use these plants as a living border. In this instance, you’ll put your preferred landscape rocks down first. You’ll then place your succulents around the edges, creating a full border all the way around an area or a partial border along the front and sides only.

Make Some Attractive Patterns

Succulents are great for creating patterns. You can do this with smaller succulent clusters and use the decorative rocks as the base. If you want to step things up with visual patterns, another possibility is to use smaller decorative Mexican beach pebbles to create patterns on top of the base rocks first. You’ll then make some attractive patterns with the succulents. This might include a zigzag pattern or a design that alternates between shorter, rounder succulents and ones that grow taller.

Consider Rocks that Reflect Light Well

Succulents and decorative rocks can become attractive focal points in your yard. With succulents, you can sprinkle an assortment of plants throughout the area. With the decorative rocks, consider lighter-hued ones, such as snow-white pebbles, that naturally reflect light. This is a more natural way to draw attention to these areas.

Mix & Match Your Decorative Rocks

You can always use smaller decorative rocks or beach pebbles immediately around your succulents. These should naturally complement any other decorative stones or rocks in the same space. For instance, you could use decorative rocks with lighter shades as borders to contrast darker-hued rocks.

Stage before You Plant

Staging simply means you’re putting down the succulents on top of the decorative rocks while the plants are still in their containers. Doing so gives you a chance to see what everything will look like while you can still do some rearranging. Once you’re happy with your succulent placement, wrap things up by:

• Gently digging to make room for your plants
• Adding some extra decorative rocks around the plants so there aren’t significant gaps
• Making sure there’s proper drainage to prevent water pooling

Add Decorative Rocks around Existing Succulents

If you have areas where succulents are already planted but only surrounded by soil or mulch, you’ll focus more on placing the decorative rocks. In this situation, you’ll get everything set up by:

• Selecting the decorative rocks you prefer*
• Removing any existing mulch or excess soil
• Making sure the area is as flat and even as possible
• Putting landscape fabric down first for drainage
• Placing your preferred rocks around your succulents

*Smaller or flatter decorative rocks tend to work well around plants.
