Black and white landscaping rocks are a fantastic way to highlight certain features in the garden.

  • Use Whites’ galvanised steel edging to contain the rocks and maintain a permanent shape.
  • This edging has a built-in interlocking system which helps it form a strong, almost seamless edge.
  • Lay down a weedmat before adding the rocks. You can put the rocks directly on the sand, but they tend to work their way into it, allowing weeds to take off.
  • Cut the weedmat into shape and use Whites’ weedmat anchors to hold it in position.
  • For full coverage, you’ll need 8 bags of the white rocks per square metre and 11 bags of the black rocks per square metre.
  • These rocks act as a mulch and the air spaces between them mean that the soil is kept cool underneath.
