Stones can be found in different sizes and shapes and thus can be also used to make some backyard furniture.

The bigger stones can be arranged in the shape of seating and thus serve as a bench. Blue tranquility, peace, and stillness.

I am an avid reader and a writer, so to me, gardens are possibly some of the most magical places on Earth.

Sitting still in a garden is worth to me a thousand dimes, a million bucks and the applauses that all the greatest performers have received in the world.

What amazes us are not the loud, buzzing compliments or even the adoration of others.

What makes us feel and wonder is the simple beauty of existence.

Landscaping is a precious form of art, a way of expressing oneself through the creations of nature.

Stone gardens are naturally a source of inspiration.

There are so many ways to design a stone garden, so many shapes and forms. It is all about the stones and the fresh grass.

There is also one more special part, unique addition to the story – it is the patience to grow the plants of your dreams.

Without that, all of your gracious endeavors would not suffice.

6. Stack Stones with a Central Support Pole

Pebbles spruce up landscaping ideas and give a distinctively modern feel to gardens and backyard designs. So why don’t we make a rock bench? It’s not so difficult.

Benches made entirely out of rocks and stones, are something we have inherited from our ancestors centuries ago.

It wasn’t unusual to build those back in the day. In fact, they were so common – like the castles, the kings, and queens. They are the perfect spot for relaxing and feeling the oneness of this world.

Sometimes a park bench becomes a strategic spot, a symbol much like the whipping top in “Inception”.

A place to go return to, to feel settled within oneself… It’s the mark where events circle back to and become whole.

8. Build a Stone Circle

We are definitely not speaking about design here anymore – there is an infatuating experience to be craved.

Gabion is a wire cage that is filled with stone or other hard broken substances. They can be used in and around your home. What about original garden furniture?

Another front yard landscaping idea with lovely stone curb appeal.

Front yards are the ideal places to create something out of the ordinary, something gorgeous – a state-of-the-art piece. This landscaping idea is about a rectangular shape made of stones.

Such a beautiful place to be. The rough stones are turned into a soft remarkable shape in the yard.

They elegantly enhance the effect of the house architecture and underline the importance of a beautiful front lawn.

If you are willing to dedicate a certain part of the budget for it, it will be well appreciated for years to come.

17. Create a Sacred Space with Stones

Stones can be used to create versatile garden decorations and can be arranged in the way you like. You just need to be creative and use this natural material to beautify the garden.

There is an array of spiritual definitions of the shape of the circle. It not only represents a life form but is said to create a sacred space where you are protected.

This is probably one of the easiest shapes to achieve with stone gardening, but it has a deep meaning in spiritual practices.

Celtics used the circle for protection, for example. The circle includes both the feminine and the masculine principles, so it’s not about gender or preference.

It is about inclusiveness and the creation of a sacred space.

18. Make a Circular Raised Garden Bed using Smooth Rocks

Another great idea would be to use it as an Herb garden. They are so easy to grow. Not much work.

My last choice would be a simple divine garden that is a home for plants, vegetables, and small fruits if you wish.

Spending a good thirty minutes every single day will make you more grounded, harmonious and vibrant. Plus, you get fresh produce all the time! Having your own garden is invaluable!

Taking the time to break through the same patterns of habits sometimes requires effort.

It’s best if we do it with activities that are easy to love and adore, such as gardening at home.
