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.
