GARDEN DESIGN WITH AGGREGATES.


Nothing gives a better finish to a planting scheme than the right selection of aggregate to provide a neat, pleasing aesthetic. Besides being functional in conserving moisture and reduce weeds, in the urban setting pebbles and cobbles add sophistication and elegance. Stones are heavier than bark mulch and as such discourage animals from digging in the beds. Aggregates also increase surface drainage, which is important for certain types of species. As I create many roof terraces and patios it is important for me to use the right size, colour and texture of aggregate in the planters. The combination of aggregate, foliage, stems and planter colour can really infuse interesting contrast and detail in any garden.
