Round river rocks and flat stones are a beautiful addition to your garden, and they're easy to work with to create walkways, patios, fire pits, dry creeks, rock gardens, bread/pizza ovens, inukshuks, stone benches and even a rock wall around your property.
The possibilities for landscaping with rock are endless.

I love to work with rocks and my greatest accomplishment was to build a 200 meter long dry rocks wall. It took me two years... but it was a lot of fun and I would do it again in a hard beat.

Using river rocks, you can create a dry creek and then plant ornamental grass and flowers along the border. For added color consider choosing grasses that are blue, purple and green. This way you can use river rock landscaping to have a river in your backyard without actually having to use water.
