What are the advantages of landscaping timbers vs stacked stone?

Landscaping timbers have always been popular with gardeners and landscapers who want a natural, rustic look. Stacked stone has been a favorite for this look also.

  • Landscaping timbers are available at most discount department stores, home improvement centers and gardening supply stores in a variety of sizes and lengths.
  • Stacked stone usually requires a lot of stone and because of this, they usually need to be delivered, which will incur a separate fee.
  • Stacked stone isn't as stable as landscape timbers and should be used with care.
  • Stacked stone is more expensive than landscape timbers.
