Decorative gravel in landscape design: 62 great ideas for inspiration

Decorative gravel is a popular choice in landscape design as it offers a variety of benefits. It can be used to create paths, driveways, and other hardscaping features, and can also be used as a ground cover to reduce the amount of grass and other plants that need to be maintained. Gravel also helps with drainage, preventing water from pooling in low-lying areas and reducing the risk of flooding. Additionally, decorative gravel can be used to create visual interest and texture in a landscape, and comes in a variety of colors, sizes, and shapes to suit different design styles.
