Landscaping takes a lot of work, dedication, and maintenance. It is nice to add fun and decorative elements between planting greenery, lawn care, or hardscaping. It allows creativity to play a part in enhancing natural outdoor features. The top three decorative landscaping supplies most popular amongst landscaping enthusiasts include mulch, riverstone, and mica chunks.
Mulch has two main qualities which go hand-in-hand, useful and decorative. Mulch supports garden beds by encouraging healthy plant roots, discouraging soil erosion, maintaining moisture levels, preventing weeds, and offers protection from the weather elements. The benefits are essential to understand. To have a beautiful landscape, it must be healthy. Besides serving as a major health benefit, mulch provides a polished look to any landscape design. There are many types and colour varieties. The different colour options allow for unique design features and promote contrast. The natural, vibrant colours of the plant life will stand out. At FSI Landscape Supply, we offer pine mulch, cedar mulch, red mulch, and black mulch. Pine Mulch is an all-natural pine bark mulch, reddish-brown in colour. Cedar Mulch is an all-natural white cedar bark mulch, light brown in colour. Red Mulch is 100% real wood fibre double-dyed with an organic colourant. Black Mulch is also 100% real wood fibre and is a deep, black colour, double-dyed with an organic colourant.

Riverstone acts as an inorganic mulch and is a trendy decorative landscaping material. As this stone comes in many shapes and sizes, design possibilities and functionality purposes are endless. At FSI, we carry four sizes of riverstone: 1”–1 ½”, 1”-3”, 4”-6”, and 5”-9”. Depending on what type of design element you want to create, it is best to ask our team here at FSI Landscape Supply which size stone would be most appropriate for your landscaping features. There are many creative ways to incorporate riverstone. With riverstone, you may choose to use it as accent décor for added texture and dimension. You can fill, trim or create a border in and around garden beds which will assist with the weather elements and promote a natural decorative aesthetic. Riverstone can also be incorporated into water features such as waterfalls, borders for ponds, or stream beds, creating an organic look. It can be used for functionality; riverstone can be used to create an aesthetic drainage system. It will divert heavy storm rain away from your garden beds or home, therefore preventing water damage. Thinking of adding a patio, terrace, or pathway to your landscape design? Use riverstone to create a natural, rustic appeal.
Mica chunks are another popular choice for decorating landscapes. Offered in a variety of colours and often come in large pieces. The large pieces are perfect for filling up spaces that could use some colour and dimension. You can choose to use mica for accenting garden features such as water elements, outdoor lighting to create pops of colour, or strategically placed around garden beds. White calcite is popular as well, adding a unique visual aesthetic to any landscape design. Simply for beautifying garden beds, flower beds, or accenting water features.
