The term gravel can refer to any loose rock or stone that is larger than sand but smaller than cobble, which means ranging from about 0.1 inch to 2.5 inches in diameter. Patagonia Building Supplies offers gravel in many shapes and sizes to suit your every need. Gravel is one of the best ways to make a durable path with good drainage; gravel paths are an elegant, versatile and highly durable option for your garden, with minimal maintenance required when laid properly.
Gravel is becoming more and more popular, as it can be used in a variety of ways. For example, gravel is a common surface material for driveways throughout the United States. Gravel driveways are a good Eco-friendly alternative to asphalt driveways. They are affordable, as easy to maintain as a paved driveway and the installation process is simple and quite fast. The gravel used for driveways is typically a processed product, consisting of rocks, sand, and clay.
Gravel creates naturally robust decorative features, complimenting hard landscaping and natural planting. It also allows free drainage of rainwater and prevents water loss when used as ground cover or as a topper for plant pots. Gardeners can use our gravel as mulches. Used on top of soil, they aid moisture retention in the summer and provide insulation from temperature fluctuation.
