Gravel for natural garden paths

Along with a mixture of plants and boulders, gravel is a "natural" choice for relaxing and easy-going landscapes. Gravel is:
  • easy to live with, you can move it around, adjust it's path/shape/size easily
  • will keep dust and mud under control
  • inexpensive compared to other options
  • it is permeable so it keeps the soil under and around it more healthy, and
  • looks great as part of a natural looking landscape.
Gravel generally does better in relatively dry climates, and it has been used extensively in Mediterranean landscapes and in the American South-West for good reason.
