Crisp beds of gravel always look good in contemporary gardens in Northern Virginia. They make a nice textural contrast to break up smooth pavers and wooden decks in patio areas. Soften the effect with bold leaf planting arching over or growing through the gravel. Use the gravel to create little islands of planting that let you still see plenty of gravel. Any plants with a Mediterranean feel are the natural choice and can be planted directly into the gravel and look stunning in modern spaces.
Gravel is a versatile material that’s perfect for landscaping around water feature ideas to create contrast against a pond or vertical cascade. If you want to use gravel for a practical purpose like this, it’s a good idea to choose a medium-sized grade like Number 5 or Number 8 Bluestone gravel.
If it’s too small and fine, then it will spread around easily as you walk over it. If it’s too large, then it may make walking on the surface difficult. Please speak with our sales people to get the right texture and size of the decorative gravel for your landscaping ideas.
