Using Gravel In Your Landscape:
Gravel is an easy and plant friendly material that you can install to create great paths and walkways in and around your home. This material is very versatile, and looks totally natural and equally refreshing to the landscape eye. While durable enough to cover most paths and driveways, using gravel can sometime convey a softer, more organic mood than most other types of paving materials.
When applying gravel to your existing yard, you will see it is a great transitional material. Gravel has many uses and it is a very cost effective type of material that can help you save money on your landscaping project.
When using gravel you will notice that it can conform to any shape you want while always maintaining a clean and crisp look. Gravel allows for easy drainage in areas where pooling can occur.
And lastly, gravels earthy texture when walking on it, reminds us of the feeling of long ago, when the crunch under your feet was what you felt and heard, long before paving and stone work began. Gravel is one of the oldest of hardscapes and bedding materials used in our country today.
To this day, gravel is still being used to create and beautify many landscapes and water features, flowerbeds, and even vegetable gardens.
