Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hrh930 Perfect landscaping rocks!
These rocks work perfectly for flower beds! I put some weed barrier down, then these rocks on top! Made a huge difference to the look of the flower bed. Definitely getting more!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJ23 Love this ground cover
My nephew suggested this as ground cover, because he knows I do not cut grass or like yard work. He placed landscape fabric over the bare ground, then used these to cover the yard. Due to work commitments he was not able to complete spreading the river pebbles. Since he did have the bags staged in the area, I opened and spread them (with a little improvising). After 2 months I still call him to say "I love my yard". Maintenance free - Yay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 311Dial911 Good value when on sale
Adequate for the project I was completing. These were on sale for $2.50 per bag when I purchased them so were a good value at that time. Price has gone up now.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KoTCentralNJ no longer the multi colored gray/blue stone from years ago
I purchased a lot of this stone a few years ago to use in my backyard. It was the typical multi color blue/gray based river stone; i loved it. I just purchased more and after opening two bags I realized the color is drastically different. It is now a tan/off white color spectrum and totally looks out of place next to my old stuff. I had to return the rest. I remember in the past that the "pond pebbles" and "pea pebbles" were tan color based, but the river ones were larger and different color. I didn't have time to try another HD store to see if they were any different. Instead I went to the L competitor and bought some pond stone from there which while a bit smaller pieces and slightly darker then what I want, but a much better match.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FrugalMike Good for really small jobs
Rockyard is around $35 per 1000lbs. This price is $70 per 1000 lbs.
If your project gets you into the 10 bag range you are better off going to the rockyard.
If you only need 2-3 bags this would be ok.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EJ Nice color variation
I purchased about 40 bags last year and 20 already this year. I was worried at first because they were all tan/brown colored but once the dirt was washed off they were really nice. The only complaint I had was that I did not buy all my bags at the same time last year and the second batch was noticeably smaller than the first bags.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SLS35 Filled in holes great
My dog has completely destroyed my yard digging. Bags of dirt filled in did nothing to alleviate the holes.
Started purchasing these bags of rock instead. Filled in the holes wonderfully. Not only do they now assist with yard flooding, the dog doesn't dig, and interesting flowers are growing up to cover them. They did not harm the tree roots that had become exposed, and they stay in place.
Need to purchase more this year. They are grey, they aren't brown, but I don't mind.

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.
