Gravel has been used since the earliest days of civilization as a construction material. There are many different shades of gravel that are available which is convenient for landscaping and construction projects that need an addition of color. Gravel can be both decorative and functional.
Gravel can be used for things such as a flower garden border, background for a rock garden, or as a small sized walkway path. The customizable color and size are extremely useful.
Gravel is often used as mulch for plants because it helps prevent evaporation from the soil surface. Medium sized gravel works best for flowerbeds and around trees because it is less likely to move due to the wind.
To create a drainage foundation for flowers, gravel can be placed in the bottom of flower pots. You can also line a downward sloping area to help direct water flow more attractively.
When gravel is used in a concrete mixture, it provides driving traction. Gravel can also be laid as is onto a wide path of your property as loose material. Matching the driveway with your home and landscaping colors is easier because gravel is available in many colors.
Other Uses Include
- Road Construction
- Mixing with asphalt
- Construction Fill
- Roofing shingles
- On icy roads in the winter for improved traction
