I have a customer getting a massive 40 x 50 deck with fireplace and whole entertainment center installed. He wanted me to install a bed of 1 - 3 river about 2 feet wide and then run a foot of red tipple on the outside of that bed around the whole outside of the deck. Then sod everything. I have done both types of stone but never together. Anyone put both in and how did it look. You would have to run edging on either side of the tipple to contain everything. Just looking for thoughts on mixing.
