Are decorative stones bad for plants?

Decorative stones are not always harmful to plants, but they can have an impact on plant growth and health if used incorrectly. Here are some things to think about when using them:

  • Drainage: Decorative stones can aid in drainage by allowing excess water to flow freely through the soil. However, if the stones are too large or too many, they might prevent water from reaching plant roots, resulting in soil waterlogging.
  • Temperature: In hotter climates, ornamental stones may absorb and radiate heat, which can harm plants. They may also assist to make soil warmer in colder climates, which is beneficial to some plants.
  • Maintenance: Decorative stones may acquire dirt and debris over time, which can harbour diseases and pests. They may also need to be removed and replaced on a regular basis to minimise soil compaction.
  • Decorative stones do not provide nutrients to plants and, in fact, if they are too densely packed, might make it more difficult for nutrients to reach the roots.

How to lay decorative aggregates

  • To lay ornamental aggregates, begin by removing any existing plants or rubbish and levelling the soil.
  • After that, lay down a geotextile membrane to prevent weeds from coming through.
  • Then use a rake to evenly distribute the aggregates to a depth of around 2-3 inches.
  • Finally, press the aggregates down with a plate compactor or a tamper. It is critical to choose the right type of aggregate for your project and to follow any manufacturer’s instructions.
