Decorative Gravels Nashville TN
Note: If you are looking for functional gravel such as limestone to use in driveways or as a filler, you’re looking for our gravel page.
Are you looking for a way to show-off your garden beds and landscaping? Do you want a way to make the walkways and patio areas around your property really “pop”? Consider adding decorative gravel to your Nashville home or office landscape. Unlike mulch or other organic products, gravel only needs to be applied once. With a minimum of maintenance to keep it in place, gravel can last forever.
“Jonathan spent time with me reviewing the project off my back patio. He walked me through the various options and then stepped away giving me time to determine what I wanted. Then he allowed me to pick the specific stones I wanted. Amazing customer service! I will be back here for the next project.”
Valerie Dennison, Nashville TN
Types of Decorative Gravels
The choices of decorative gravels are almost as varied as styles of homes. You can see our full product list here but among the most popular choices are:
Mexican Beach Pebbles
If you want to create a cohesive look with gray undertones in an outdoor area, pick Mexican beach pebbles. These pebbles are smooth, gray-colored stones that add a casual, rustic look. The gray color looks great in a pathway or a garden. These Mexican river pebbles are larger than a lot of gravel, and they are smooth and curved, creating a look with depth and interest. Mexican beach pebbles really are from the beach, as they come from the Baja Peninsula of Mexico, where they are picked by hand.
We offer a number of other types of river rock, in addition to Mexican beach pebbles. They are smooth and similar in style to the Mexican beach pebbles, but they come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can choose different styles, including Pigeon River rock. With river rock, you can decorate a garden, create a dry river bed and create borders and walkways. These stones come in imperfect natural colors and shapes that will add character to your landscaping. The same batch can include stones of varying sizes, which can help create a more compact walkway with the smaller stones filling in the gaps.
Just like a marble countertop, marble rocks add a bright sheen and intriguing marbling effect to your outdoor area. This variety can add a more formal and high-end look to a walkway, garden or other project than some of the more rustic rock varieties. When you order marble rocks, you’ll get a subtle variety in color that ranges from sleek white through soft grays. Each rock can include a variety of colors within the one piece to add interest. And these rocks are jagged and angular, so they give a different appearance than smooth stones.
Lava rocks can add a very exotic feel to any outdoor space. Plus, they give you deeper colors than many other varieties to create an intriguing and eye-catching look for a walkway, driveway or other project. They’ll look amazing around colorful tropical plants or with a Tiki theme. We offer red lava rocks that come in a range of shades within the maroon-like red hue. We also have black lava rocks for a look that is very sleek and stylish. Lava rocks come with jagged edges and a porous look that helps them stand out from the stone crowd.
Tennessee Pea Gravel
TN pea gravel is perfect for high-traffic areas. We have two different sizes: 5/8″ and 1 1/2″, so you can choose the size that fits the look you’re going for. The smaller size gives you a flatter walkway or driveway as you can compact the stones together. The larger size creates a looser feel where you can really see the details of each stone. Pea gravel comes in a variety of neutral colors that add subtle interest to an outdoor space. You’ll see pops of gray, brown, tan and even white and blue in the same batch.
These are only a small selection of the gravels we offer at The Rock Place, although some of our most popular. Nonetheless, if you decide you want something different, try the shiny and colorful Spring Creek rocks, stunning red rock, bluish-hued slate chips and more.
