Advantages to Using Aggregates in Your Gardens

When it comes to using aggregates in your gardens, there are several advantages. Still, the biggest advantage of working with your garden is that you get to spend more time outside, helping things grow and crafting a beautiful, bountiful space.

Better Appearance

Perhaps the greatest advantage of aggregates is the wealth of decorative options they present. Choose a deep shale for a darker, more vivid garden. Or, use some smooth, round river rock to create the perfect natural border to a fountain or water feature. The aesthetic possibilities of aggregates are limited only by what you can find near you.

Better Weeding

Many aggregates and mulches can help reduce the propagation of weeds in your garden. Applied after planting and fertilizing, these materials serve the double function of looking great and protecting your garden bed. 

Inexpensive, Bountiful Decorative Material

Another great benefit of aggregates is their ability to be purchased in bulk. When purchased in bulk, these materials make it a breeze to decorate landscapes of any size. Whether you are planning a small upgrade or a complete overhaul, aggregates are easy to use, easy to place and easy to get in the right quantities for projects both big and small. Aggregates also aren’t as likely to be blown away as mulch is, so you save time and money not having to constantly replace it.

Environmentally Friendly

Aggregate material is one of the most environmentally friendly options available for decorative gardens. The fundamental structure of the material doesn’t change through the cleaning and sorting process, meaning that you can feel good about choosing this option time and time again. 

Time Savings

Use aggregates to save time on building your garden and realizing your vision. These materials are easy to work with, so building and planning are a breeze. They are also low maintenance, meaning that once you have a system you like, keeping it beautiful and pristine is simple and straightforward.

Flexibility

Finally, aggregates are one of the most flexible decorative materials available for your garden. From pathways and driveways to flower beds, rockeries and fish ponds, a good aggregate can have multiple applications. This makes them a versatile alternative to manufactured decorations or pre-made containers.
