Gravel Garden

Smart garden path materials balance aesthetics and functionality. See the pros and cons of using materials such as gravel, turf, dry-laid pavers, mortared paths, wood mulch and stones.

These bottles make a pretty garden edge. I like the bits of pea gravel in the indentations. It's also a good place to collect pretty little stones.

Pressure-treated lumber laid on a bed of gravel gives you a fast, easy foundation that will last for decades. Or lay joists on the wood foundation and fill the wood foundation with gravel and lay cement pavers. A paver floor allows water to drain through, so it's perfect for a gardening shed and you can rinse the floor clean with a hose.

I like this garden path for the back with our pavers,this would be great with homemade stepping stones

Planning a Backyard Path: Gravel Paths A garden path enhances any backyard. Learn about design factors, limitations and installation techniques for gravel, stone, brick and pavers, along with attractive edging options.

Easy accessories: Craft an arbor from twigs and raffia, or a garden grotto from pieces of bark. A small mirror makes a good reflecting pool. Aquarium gravel can be used as a garden path.

so pretty, love pea gravel was used too.

I like the way these boards are arranged to curve a bit, with gravel between them - the finish is nice too (looks almost wet) - not much info on site and I can't find another source, but I really REALLY like the look! ******************************************** TheBestDressedGarden - #wood #garden #path t√

Add some visual interest and practical purpose to a sloped garden landscape by creating a gavel-stepped walkway. Pea gravel and new or salvaged wood beams are all that you will need to create one like this. Simply level out the grade, or create steps with the beams and fill in with gravel.

Arbors can work in tandem with paths to establish a defined entry point. Here, the informality of the structure is reinforced by round pavers and gravel. Plants spill over the borders of the pathway for a sweet, cottage-style garden. Curves can either be traditional or casual; this arbor relies on a gentle swoop overhead. A robust vine rambles up and over the arbor.

Appealing Path-Cut stone, river rock, gravel, and sand are the main ingredients in this appealing path. Though it looks random and rustic, it follows a definite plan.

Tilt Solution Plants edging a path work wonders to offer views and tame a side yard. Add a path or two along planting beds on your slope; it'll help make garden maintenance easier. Gravel and flagstones form a path that hugs the bottom of the hill. Repeated groupings of shade-loving plants flank the sides of the walkway, creating a sense of intimacy.

Rock Garden Ideas. On top of the “hidden” in-ground infiltration system, the river-rock is interspersed with Agave americana ‘Varietgata’ and ‘Icee Blue’ spreading juniper (Juniperus horizontalis ‘Icee Blue’).
