Are you looking to spruce up the land around your property? Of course, plants are the first thing that come to mind when considering improving your landscape. However, installing and maintaining such landscaping takes a lot of work.
Fortunately, for those overwhelmed at the thought of this route, there are other ways to make your yard look better. Take gravel, for example. This versatile material is an excellent landscaping alternative. It can draw attention to other features in your landscape or be its primary aesthetic element.
What is Gravel?
“Gravel” refers to a type of aggregate made up of broken rock. We have different sizes of gravel at Green Landscape Supply. All of them are made of high-quality natural stone. We also have flagstone, a material popularly used alongside small, pebble-sized gravel, particularly for walkways.
There are Many Ways to Use Gravel
Gravel can improve the appearance and functionality of your landscape, whether you decide to use it generously or sparingly. It functions well as pathway material, gardening mulch, a filler between flagstone pavers, a drainage tool around a building, a hardscape material for outdoor seating areas and more. Applications abound.
Gravel with Other Landscaping Elements
Gravel is affordable and comes in various shapes, colors and sizes, making it suitable for anyone’s budget and aesthetic goals. It works with any style and can complement any landscape feature. For example, if you want an element in your yard to stand out, you can surround it with gravel and lead people to it with a gravel walkway.
Gravel and Water Features
Gravel and larger stones combined are great for covering the bottom of recirculation fountains, ponds and dry streams.
Gravel and a Fire Pit
Gravel is a cheap and practical alternative to more expensive flooring options like pavers or flagstone, and it provides a secure landing spot for any errant sparks. To elegantly draw attention to your fire pit, you can select a gravel that contrasts or echoes the stone color used to build the feature. Otherwise, any shade of gravel works nicely if you have a portable fire pit, like a metal one.
