Affordable, easy to maintain and beautiful, gravel patios are ideal for adding a laidback seating area to your yard. A long-standing favorite with garden designers, gravel has a tactile charm all of its own. 

Made up of small, rounded stones and crushed rock, this landscaping material is readily available, inexpensive, easy to work with and lends itself to many different patio ideas. It also has a satisfying crunch underfoot, plus practical benefits when it comes to retaining moisture, suppressing weed growth and helping to unify awkward or irregularly shaped areas of the garden.
