Black Mexican Beach Pebbles These hand-harvested beach pebbles from Baja California are versatile stones used in concrete patios, ground cover in planter-bed and container gardens, dry creek effects, contemporary design borders, and many other applications. The most common characteristic of these beach pebbles is the smooth surface and fairly uniform size in each sorted group. These and all other Mexican beach pebbles are sorted in sizes that range from 1/4" ( Criva ) to 12 inches. The stones are sorted into color groups of Black-grey, Red, Buff, and Mixed Colors. The terra-cotta or orange-red stones are called Baja Sunburst Pebbles.
Mexican Beach cobbles, pebbles, and crivea are used in a variety of large commercial landscape and hardscape projects, such as hospitals, hotels, resorts, high-rise buildings, municipalities, and airports. In residential landscapes and hardscapes, beach pebbles are used for small projects (such as planters and flower beds), large projects (such as driveways, walls, patios, decks, tree circles, and water-smart gardens), and everything else in condos, designer homes, and elaborate mansions.
The smooth surface makes Mexican beach pebbles ideal for ground covering, walkways, driveways, outdoor and indoor planters, dry river beds, and ponds. Mexican beach pebbles are also excellent for water features. Mexican beach pebbles are a great solution for low-water landscaping. They provide a very elegant and practical solution and an excellent alternative for grass.
