J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 5 Gravel and Stone Types for a Rockin' Landscape
River Rock The basics: River rocks are larger than pea gravel, typically 1 inch and larger in diameter. They're available in a variety of colors, costs and sizes, and are used to create dry creek beds or to direct drainage through a property. Cost: This type of rock is sold by the pound or by the ton. Per-pound costs range from 5 cents to 35 cents, and per-ton costs run $100 to $700, depending upon variety.Advantages: It's readily available in different types and costs.Disadvantages: It can be difficult to weed through this type of rock; maintenance should be consistent so you can avoid unpleasant cleanups.Special considerations: To create a realistic-looking dry creek bed, use different sizes of river rock with some small and large boulder accents — Mother Nature doesn't limit herself to just one size rock.Maintenance: As with other types of rock, stay on top of weeding, as once weeds get out of control, it's very difficult to remove them. Use a blower to remove seasonal debris, like fallen leaves and soil. Installing landscape fabric underneath river rock is a great way to keep this heavier rock from settling into the soil below.
