River Rock comes in a variety of sizes and colors ranging from 3/8″ to 8″ or bigger. The forces of nature have smoothed the rock so that there are no sharp edges thus creating a natural look to ponds and dry creek beds. Sometimes the larger rocks are used to create walls, columns or pathways and accents in garden areas.
