Customer Reviews

0.5 cu. ft. River Pebbles is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Good size rocks These rocks are a perfect size for rock gardens. In between pea gravel and river rocks. They show brown or tan, but they are more gray. They seem to have become very popular so get them while you can and pick up an extra bag or two . I needed another bag to finish and they sold out quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 2 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and inexpensive patio My husband and I used this river rock and pavers to build a patio in our muddy, grass-less backyard. We outlined a 10 x 10 ft. area with the pavers, and filled in the center with rock and sand. This size rock drains very well, and the rocks keep our patio furniture from getting muddy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Looks great on the outdoor decor 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Rock! This rock has beautiful tans, whites, and rose colors with some darker colors thrown in. Large, medium and small pieces in the same bag. I just poured it from the bag onto landscaping fabric, raked it and stepped on it to level it, and hosed it off to see the wonderful colors. I used it between the back wall of my house and the patio. Looks fabulous.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Great for a garden path Created a nice garden path through our backyard with these pebbles. Have a lot of trees and didn't want to damage roots by pouring concrete. They look tan in the bag, but that is just the sand that is covering them - they are multi-colored and look really nice once they are washed. Phase 1 of my project was 15 feet by 3 feet by 1.5 inches deep - it took 13 bags to complete. Make sure you use some kind of edging to keep the pebbles in place and a weed blocking fabric under the pebbles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Excellent for aquaponics I purchased about 30 bags of these rocks to fill my indoor aquaponics system and have been happy with them so far. There was a lot of dirt in the bags so they did need to be washed well but they have been working great in the system. You can see several videos showcasing this rock on my YouTube channel listed with the review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Best size rock for borders/edging Would have been able to buy by the yard if sales associate had said that was an option after I explained that I would be using over 200 bags! Otherwise product is actually not grey-it is tan/brown- which was the color pallet I was trying to match. Easy to use. Uniform in color and size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be careful what you buy online I thought I was getting more of a gray stone, but this is mostly a rusty color. Does not match the picture in the least. I was trying to get gravel that would mix well with some I already had. I can use it in another location. I didn't want to drive 50 miles back to the store to return it. All in all, not a pleasant experience. DO NOT buy natural materials sight unseen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly pretty I looked at the pictures and had some reservation. I bought them anyway. After putting them down and gave them a rinse, they look much better without the sand residue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Really "Pebbles" Advertised as "pebbles". These are really medium sized rock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive covering We used this to cover a portion of a garden we pulled up, so that we could set up a seating area. It was inexpensive--which was important to us, since we were leasing our home--but I would have loved to have used a smoother rock. Overall, very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty! If you just need a bit of rock these are very nice, small, even sized and after they got rained on a pretty color. I just needed them where the gutter drains come off my house to prevent erosion and they work very well, heavy enough not to float off and keep the grass away from the end of the drain. If you need a lot of rock it is much cheaper to by it bulk but for small projects these work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting I love this product not only because it's long lasting but it also features a chart on the front of the package that is great in helping you determine how many bags you need for a particular area. Very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for the landscape project. I think it matches very well with our gray decking. Very pretty colors-mostly blacks and grays with a few dark reds and cream colors. The only complaint I have is that my husband is always picking through them to find "oddball shapes" or "gems" and stacking these up along the drive.......I am seriously considering finishing the rest of my project with stepping stones and bricks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Landscape pebbles and stepping stones Good product to keep weeds down and mud at bay! I used this in a small courtyard at the entrance to my house to surround the stepping great and cleans up to look like the more expensive pebbles.
