With more and more homeowners becoming more environmentally conscious, using gravel instead of grass is growing in popularity. Grass requires water and chemicals to stay looking nice, and it needs to be trimmed regularly. Many homeowners are turning to the versatility of low-maintenance gravel. There is a wide variety of gravel types for you to choose from, so you should be able to find something that matches your landscaping needs perfectly!
Glass gravel has a lot to offer your landscape design. Recycled glass is crunched down into small pieces, and then tumbled until there are no more sharp edges. Glass gravel is available in hundreds of different colors. You can get something neutral and natural looking, or you can get a bright color to add an eye-catching pop to your landscape.
If you’re looking for a budget and/or DIY-friendly gravel, look no further than crushed granite. It typically comes in shades of grey and brown. The small pieces are great for covering any space, from a large driveway to a small accent garden.
Since river rock pieces vary in size and tend to be larger, this type of stone is usually best used for accents. River rock makes a great border for your garden or walkway. Put some river rock at the bottom of your pond for a more natural look, or add it to a water feature to hear the soothing sounds of a river right in your own backyard!
Slate chips are another versatile choice. They come in many colors and can easily be used in a variety of locations around your property. The strong slate makes a great driveway. It is also a good environmentally friendly garden mulch, as it will help suppress weeds without attracting bugs.
