Check Our Wider Selection Of Pammie Pebbles. Enjoy The Color

We have expanded our stock dramatically on the very popular Mexican Pebbles. We have several color and size combinations in stock. These are all hand sorted and selected. As a result, they are a bit more, but their beauty is more than compensation for that.

The one above is one of our favorites, the Mixed Color 1" to 2" size. We are showing in the top photo what they look like dry and in the bottom photo how they look wet. The color just burst out when they are wet. So, you can put in a sprinkler system to wet them throughout the day, or you and purchase a product from us that gives them a glaze that holds the color for quite some time. The wet look is in when it comes to these beautiful naturally rounded stones.

Stop by and check out the entire selection along with out selection of Pammie Pebbles with very similar colorful skin. We are at 150 East H Street in Dixon, CA. Call us at 707-678-8200.
