    Love the look of stones in the garden. They work as pathways, bordering walls or even as a birdbath if you find one with a suitable indentation. Natural is always better than “manufactured” in the garden, although some manufactured stone products look as natural as the real thing.

  2. Stones are also a favorite of mine. I like mixing moss and small flowers in the rock borders or on top of a rock fence. Denise

  3. Although these stones are suitable for every project, a farmer’s field can be a good place to find free stones as well.
    It probably doesn’t work this way everywhere, but in the Northeast farmers clear their fields of large stones in the spring after plowing. These will all get dumped in a corner somewhere – all you have to do is ask!

    We have many piles of rock dumped alone the fence lines and in a few cleared fields from years past. They do make great rocks for projects. Denise
