River Stones

Achieve the landscaping look you’re after with our selection of river stones.

River stones are a popular feature in many landscaping projects and for good reason. Easy to maintain and keep the weeds at bay, river stones provide a natural, modern look. At Watson Davies Landscape Supplies we source our river stones from Kaiaua and Ruapehu, giving you a choice when it comes to adding the finishing touch to your next project.

Pea Metal (3-8mm)

Our locally sourced pea metal is a smaller stone of volcanic origin and comes in shades of soft creams and browns.

Typical Use: Wide landscaping appeal both indoors and out. Also used as a drainage material in hard to access situations, and where appearance matters.

Compatible Products: Wide range of other landscaping materials. Novaflow slotted pipe for drainage purposes.

Garden Pebble (16-25mm)

Also known as Waikato Gold, our garden pebble stock comes in a range of sizes from 16mm – 25mm. This locally sourced pebble from nearby quarries is like Pea Metal but a larger size.

Kaiaua (small, 7-20mm)

We source all our Kaiaua river stones from the Kaiaua Stone Company on the Firth of Thames Coastline. Our smallest Kaiaua river stones come in 7-20mm size. This smooth river stone comes in uniform tones of grey, between gun metal and ash.

Kaiaua (medium, 20-40mm)

Our Kaiaua river stones come in a range of different sizes. If you want to achieve contrast with your landscape project, combine the smaller stone with our 20 – 40mm size. It comes in the same range of grey tones.

Kaiaua (extra-large, 65-150mm)

The largest of our Kaiaua sourced river stones is the 65-150mm. This is a mixed grade that includes some stones larger than 150mm also.  Grey and off-white tones with some marbling make these a very attractive stone. An ideal stone where impact is required.
