Do you have kids going back to school on August 1st? If so, it is the perfect time to start your own DIY stone or landscaping project!

It’s late July (already!?!?) – the height of summer here in northern Georgia. And yet, for many of us, our thoughts are already turning toward the first vestiges of autumn. No, the leaves are not about to start turning. Neither is this the first weekend of high school or college football.

What is imminently just around the corner, however, is the start of school for our kids, K through 12th grade. Here in Cobb County the first day of in-person classes are on Monday, August 1st, a mere 9 days away. The first day in Fulton County is a week later: Monday, August 8th. Practically every other county in central and northern Georgia open their schools somewhere between these two dates.

The beginning of the 2022-2023 school year also marks the 2nd year in a row we will have a “normal” start to the school year. Something we used to take for granted, but of course since the year of COVID we realize is something we should be very thankful for being so typically routine.

So, what are some of you going to do now that you will have your “free” time back during the day? Here at Stone Distributors we have an excellent idea for you: come on in and we will help you plan and execute a DIY landscaping or gardening project!

One of our specialties here at Stone Distributors is helping DIYers like yourself. No matter how far along you are in your planning, staging our even actual building of your landscaping, gardening or stone project, we can help. We have 5 acres of an expanded variety of stone and landscaping materials for you to choose from to help you find just the right yard goods for your project.

This spring you may recall we added Sawn Veneer, Screened Top Soil, Clean Fill Dirt AND Slate Trail Mix to our already burgeoning variety of products available to you. Now you can take advantage of these additions to finish off your particular project just the way you envision it.

Meanwhile, here is a list of a few basic, fun DIY project ideas that will improve the look and feel of your property to help get your imagination flowing:

  1. Flower Garden
  2. Rock Garden
  3. Vegetable Garden
  4. Rock wall
  5. River bed (if you have a stream or river that flows through some part of your property)
