Get to know gravel – It’s not all the same

Gravel is an easy material to work with and it is reasonably priced. The addition of a gravel pathway to your garden or yard can help add another exciting element to your outdoor space. There are a few important aspects of gravel to keep in mind before starting on your next gravel pathway.

The type of gravel you use matters. Loose gravel might be difficult for wheelchairs, bikes, and high heels so those that are laying out these gravel pathways want to be aware. But there are many ways to combat this so you can create the gravel path of your dreams.

CORE Gravel is a gravel stabilizing system that utilizes a foundation of honeycomb-celled panels that connect throughout. To use, lay the foundation down and fill the honeycombs with gravel. The cells are practically invisible when the gravel is in place, but the cells protect the pathway from being penetrated by high heels, kicked up by rogue feet, or detrimental to bikes or wheelchairs. This product also allows storm water to permeate into the soil, which reduces runoff.

Another solution would be to set stepping stones or pavers into the gravel pathway. Adding these stones creates an enticing look to your pathway and allows those who need extra support to find their footing. Beautiful stones like these Galaxy Black Limestone pavers or Replica San Francisco Cobbles can do the trick.
