Best Uses for Pea Gravel

Pea gravel are small, fluid stones that you often find near bodies of water and offer an appealingly smooth texture. Pea gravel comes in sizes that range from 1/8 inch to 3/8 inch, which measures out to around the size of a pea. And you get often get pea gravel in a variety of natural colors, such as buff, shades of grey, white, translucent, and rust brown.

The best uses for pea gravel includes paths, patios, driveways, and playgrounds. Surprisingly, pea gravel is an often-overlooked mulch material around containers and garden plants, despite the fact that is effectively suppresses weed growth, retains moisture, and does not decompose like organic mulch.

However, due to its tendency to travel, pea gravel must be contained by some sort of edging material, like brick or stone. But when properly used, it provides excellent drainage, as well as a rodent barrier since rodents cannot dig through the pea gravel.

Pea gravel also shifts underfoot, so it can be hard to drag any wheeled conveyance, such as a stroller, a suitcase or wheelbarrow. And may not be stable enough to support outdoor furniture. Just something to consider when you are looking to use it for your yard.

Pea Gravel Installation

Pea gravel is a pretty easy material to use and install. In general, you will want to work the soil about 6 inches deep, remove any weeds present, lay down 2 inches of crushed stone, and then cover that with a 3-inch-deep layer of pea gravel. Why lay down some base rock crushed stone? The base rock will stabilize the pea gravel and provide a firm surface. If you lay down pea gravel without a crushed stone base, then the gravel may act like a pile of marbles and look very sloppy. Stone dust can be added after the fact in an effort to stabilize the pea gravel.

If you are laying down the pea gravel in an area that has a lot of weed growth, then you may want to consider adding a barrier of landscape cloth between the base rock and the pea gravel. However, it is important to note that landscape cloth comes with its own issues, such as deteriorating and/or becoming visible over time.
