Stones for rock garden furniture.

Garden stones: freeing gardens and paths from stones? Nothing more antiquated! Gone are the times when garden stones were considered a nuisance for the exterior of a home or accommodation facility. Today the stones are saved, taken back, re-evaluated and used without thinking twice just for the decoration of the garden.

Stones in the garden. Let’s show them!

In short, what was once hidden and eliminated, today is put on display, indeed often becomes the flagship of a well-kept courtyard.
Of course, as with any piece of furniture that is made of stone, there are infinite possibilities of choice between shape, color, processing. All the stones for the garden, from the roughest to the most finely worked, add a touch of trend and refinement to our outdoor environment. All garden stones end up meeting the taste of the “master of the house”, whether rustic, classic or modern.

Decorative stones, what a surprise!

Certainly garden stones are that added value that is a bit of a welcome surprise along the path of a courtyard or garden. With the intent to amaze those who experience it and cross it and to create a refined and fairytale atmosphere, almost like a nineteenth-century novel. And although they are a trend of recent years, they actually rely on our being Italians, therefore Latin, inhabitants of Magna Graecia. To have cells in the DNA that still recall ancient temples, large buildings of classical inspiration, the perfection and balance of religious sculptures that have made the history of art. But garden stones aren’t just classically inspired. Indeed, it will probably be amazed to note that decorative stones are the masters even in gardens illuminated by a completely different sun, perhaps the Rising Sun.

The Zen garden is a surprising example of the balanced and harmonious use that can be made of decorative garden stones.
Since stone is, in this type of garden, one of the preeminent and essential elements. The Zen garden is in fact made up of gravel, sand, stones of different sizes. The peculiarity of the architecture of a Zen garden are its balance and its size. The fact that it could only be organized like this, with its walls, its paths, its pauses, its breath. The Zen gardens, always well cared for, communicate a high sense of peace and serenity and are increasingly widespread today. In the western land, where they are recreated in all sizes and even in “mignon” format, for the table, completely equal to the larger ones. This is a trend that is developing hand in hand with the interest that is felt towards oriental culture, today lived with due respect. Which is due to a complicated and stratified millenary tradition.

Garden stones to mark the path.

The most traditional use that can be made of garden stones is to make them supports or markers along an avenue. The boulders can in fact be arranged in such a way as to act as steps leading to over-elevated or, on the contrary, subjected garden areas. Or they can delimit a path, a passage, mark a path. In this sense, they will help create an atmosphere with a more rustic flavor.
Still on this line of use, decorative garden stones can take on the role of delimiting the different corners of the garden itself. By dividing the green area from the one reserved for relaxation, strolling or indicating the path to access the home. Stones for paths. The stones for the garden, if they are at least a little worked and therefore smooth, can be “walkable” and therefore themselves constitute a path, more or less long, to be traveled, to access other sections of the external environment.

Stones and stones, with more functions.

The stones that are usually defined as “multifunctional” deserve a separate discussion, they are those stones that take on another task, in addition to their decorative value. Very popular are the stones used to illuminate the space – within which a lighting system is placed. Or those delegated to the diffusion of sound that are usually used in the outdoors of accommodation facilities where ceremonies of various kinds are held. In the latter case, a cable radio system allows you to listen to the same music both inside and outside the structure.

Big stones, but also small ones.

Finally, large garden stones, even rough ones, are beautiful, all richly shored up with imperfections that constitute a great chromatic richness and shapes. A few are enough, even two or three, positioned in strategic corners of the garden. For example, near a waterfall, a pond, at the edge of a swimming pool or near an outdoor conversation lounge. To give a touch of class and elegance to the outdoor environment. Often larger stones can be combined with smaller stones, in a composition that is only apparently casual, but instead studied in all details to enrich the structure with light and value.
