Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dick Extremely Disappointed
I used this product about 5 years ago for a portion of my garden and it looked great. Over time, debris built up such that the stones looked like they were sinking into the ground. So I went to Home Depot to buy some more to fill on top and refresh the look. The former product was nicely graded into pebbles from about 1/2 inch to about 1 inch. The current bags I purchased contain a great deal (half by measure) of pea pebble size stones. Pea pebbles are a separate product. If this was a mistake I would like to know where I can get properly sized river pebbles. If it is not a mistake, it is a deliberate cheapening of the product. In the photos shown, it is easy to tell the previous product from the current offering.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shinypenny River Pebbles
Beautiful natural colors! I used these in several places in my yard, next to the foundation around some bushes, and in a shrub grouping. The river pebbles are better for long term application rather than mulching every year. I put down landscaping fabric, and poured the rocks on top to keep them from sinking into the dirt. For more texture, and interest, I got some bags of the larger egg rocks, and sprinkled them around on top of the river pebbles here and there.
Sometimes I get a few weeds growing in the rocks, but it's from weed seeds blowing into the rocks and sprouting, not a result from weeds growing up through the rocks and landscape fabric, so a treatment of weed killer is needed once in a while.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smsmkm Very happy with my rocks
I bought these to fill the space around my walking steps and to be able to mow around them with out it all being displaced - like the mulch I had used previously. These stones are larger than pebbles but they were perfect for my project.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ladygardener Somewhat disappointed in color
Purchased 10 bags (500 lbs) of this product based on past purchases of River Rock. This color shown here is brown or tan. The rock I purchased when placed are VERY light gray, almost white unless they are wet of course. And..... 50 % of each bag had small pebbles mixed in with the larger rock size. NOT what I thought I was getting. Even @ 3.47 a bag, they look awful
After placing them, thinking they were tan in color ~ boy was I bummed :( Can't move them and HATE the color.

We bought this product to decor our outdoor stairs and it looks great! Not only it is great to be outside but it also holds well during raining days.

Advertised as "pebbles". These are really medium sized rock.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Olddude Great for a natural "woods" setting
Bought 20 bags to add an inch to crushed rock patio nestled in the spruce woods, looks very natural with many browns, tans, off-white. Don't just look at the stones in the bag. In the bags they look dull and monotone. Try to find a ripped bag in the store that has been exposed to the rain to see the true color. Avoid if you want a blue/grey palate.
