In the Japanese garden, Granite curbstones are applied to form borders between different sections of the garden. Additionally, curbstones can be used to create stairs to, for example, a veranda or as part of a rising path through the garden.
Besides that, granite curbstones are an essential part of creating a beautiful traditional Sokkō gutter (砂利側溝). Sokkō are used to drain rain water in an elegant way. They are formed by placing two parallel granite curbstones with a space of around 20 centimeters in between, alongside the edges of the garden. This is followed by placing a drainage system in the space between the curbstones. To complete the Sokkō the drainage system has to be covered by pebbles.
