Dress it up with greenery and flowers.


When paired with the right ornamental plants, stonework has an even greater appeal. Here are some suggestions that work well for framing a walkway or dressing up a retaining wall. Whatever your pleasure, these all look great with stone.

• ornamental grasses
• daisy-type flowers (Coneflower, Shasta, Black-Eyed Susan)
• small pine shrubs (Blue Shag, Mugho)
• low-growing junipers (Grey Owl, Gold Lace)
• native perennials (Amsonia, Aster, Baptisia)
