8mm – 14mm Scottish Pebbles
The 8mm -14mm Scottish Pebbles are one of the best-selling and most loved garden products we supply. If you are looking to create a front porch or back garden that has a classic and traditional look then these Scottish Pebbles will help you achieve that look.
The Scottish Pebbles come in an exquisite range of colours such as browns, brick reds and creams, allowing you to have a multidimensional and vivid look in your garden. Not only are these garden stones beautiful to look at, but they are also the highest quality pebbles you will find due to their durability and silky-smooth finish.
We source our Scottish Pebbles from Scotland, hence the name. These garden stones are derived from granite stones which means that they are long-lasting and sturdy, therefore able to withstand all types of weather and traffic. The stone sizes range from 8mm to 14mm and are fish friendly, allowing you to use them in all areas of your garden, such as soft landscaping, hard landscaping or even a pond.
8mm – 14mm Scottish Pebbles for Your Garden
There is a myriad of ways you can place Scottish Pebbles in your garden to create an effective look. A popular garden design idea is to create a decorative stone feature area at the centre point of your garden to create a focal area. This is a simple and inexpensive way to decorate your garden and add an extra special touch.
A second garden idea would be to lay these pebbles out on your front patio. If you want to add some character and colour to your front garden without any extensive work then use these Scottish Pebbles to create a brighter and more professional look that will create an excellent first impression for any visitors you get.
Do keep in mind that due to the size of the pebbles being 8mm – 14mm and their smooth texture, they are not appropriate to use on driveways and walkways. As a result of the stones being too smooth to lock onto each other, they are not stable enough to drive or walk on and therefore should be avoided for safety reasons.
Scottish Pebbles as a Water Feature
If you want to build a pond in your garden or already have one that is a little bit of a fixer-upper, then the 8mm 14mm Scottish Pebbles are a straightforward way to elevate your pond or water feature without it being too expensive or complicated. These pebbles will add more colour and texture to your water feature and encourage wildlife to visit your garden. The brown and red stones allow the pebbles to blend in with nature to create a more authentic look.
On the other hand, if you already have a garden feature in your garden that needs a little life breathed into it, you can decorate its surrounding area with Scottish Pebbles to create a feature area and instantly enhance a garden product that you already had but may have been bored of. As a bonus, these Pebbles look fantastic around water features as their colours brighten when wet; you will notice that the stones look glossier and the colours are more prominent compared to when they’re dry.

How to Create a Rockery Water Feature
Many modern households are choosing to have Water Features as a focal point in their garden. Water Features are a great way to create a tranquil, zen-garden ideal for hanging out or just resting right there in your home. Rockery features are an easy way to make this space your own and enhance it to match your tastes.
You can always purchase Water Features, they are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, however, if you want the satisfaction of building your own water feature, keep reading for your handy set of instructions on how to DIY a Rockery Water Feature.
The first step is to make sure you have all the correct tools and materials. Start by getting your hands on a watertight container which you can link to a bucket or keg – this will allow you to create your self-contained pond. If you want to do something simpler, some popular design ideas would be to use big baskets, an old paddling pool or a bathtub. Once you have chosen your vessel, line it with a strong weed membrane for an extra layer of protection, especially if you think your pond has holes in it.
In order to create a rockery feature that looks natural and authentic, you have a varied range of stones, rocks, and boulders at your disposal, which in turn will allow you to create a one-of-a-kind feature in your garden. This rockery feature will ensure that you get lots of visits from the local wildlife and will also give you the freedom to create different designs. One idea could be to build a mini waterfall by placing the rockery in a tiered fashion. This will create a tranquil oasis in your garden where you will be able to enjoy the sounds of flowing water. Browse through our Rocks and Boulders collection that will enhance your feature area further.
Another design idea would be to create a babbling brook in your garden, which is already a very popular design due to homeowners enjoying the sounds of water flowing down a rock formation. In order to build this feature, you will need to purchase a solar-powered pump that will make sure your water is steadily streaming at all times.
In a similar fashion, you may also consider purchasing a solar-powered water fountain, which you will be able to find in a wide range of sizes and prices. To add even more depth and beauty to the area, you can choose to add a fountain to your water feature which will instantly brighten up your garden.
Finally, you may want to create a watering station for the local wildlife, and you need not make this any more complicated than it needs to be. If you are able to procure an old bathtub or paddling pool or a particularly large pot, all you would need to do is add fresh water and some lily pads and you will have a functioning, low-maintenance water feature.
Due to our Decorative Stones being a naturally-sourced product, there will always be some variation from batch to batch, especially in terms of colour. On occasion, your garden stones may be very dusty; we recommend hosing your new stones down to wash them and reveal their true colour.
