Howarth Timber & Building Supplies offer a wide range of beautiful pebbles and Scottish cobbles. The stones are fairly large in size, especially compared to other Decorative Aggregates such as chippings and gravel.
In the past, cobbles were used to pave streets, however in the 21st Century the term is more a generic term to describe a stone that is between 2.5 inches and 10 inches in size. Pebbles, on the other hand are generally smaller than cobbles, although they are larger in size than gravel. Pebble are found on beaches, as well as on land where seas once existed.
Since pebbles are created underwater, they are ideal to be used in ponds, streams and water features, as well as around ponds, since the stones are fish friendly. They are too large to be used on either driveways or paths, as the stones would not be comfortable or easy to manoeuvre across.
They come in a variety of browns, creams, pinks and greys.
