Pea Gravel

Pea Gravel

Introduction

Pea gravel is a popular choice for landscape gardening and construction aggregates, known for its small, smooth, and round appearance. These tiny stones, typically about 3/8 inch in size, are admired for their natural look and variety of colours ranging from white, grey and brown to a mix of shades. This versatility makes pea gravel an excellent choice for various applications, such as walkways, patios, and playgrounds, and as a mulch substitute in garden beds. Its smooth texture is gentle on bare feet, making it a favourite for paths and play areas. Additionally, pea gravel provides excellent drainage, preventing water accumulation and protecting plant roots from rot. This attribute and its aesthetic appeal have made pea gravel a staple in residential and commercial landscaping projects.

There are different types of pea gravel to suit various project needs. The most common is the standard pea gravel, widely used for its balance of affordability and quality. For those seeking a more refined look, washed pea gravel is available, which undergoes a thorough cleaning process to remove any dust and debris, enhancing its appearance and texture. Another popular type is the polished pea gravel, which is tumbled to achieve a more polished and shiny surface, ideal for decorative purposes in landscaping. For eco-conscious consumers, recycled pea gravel offers a sustainable option. It is made from repurposed landscaping materials such as concrete and glass, giving a unique twist to the traditional gravel look. Each pea gravel type offers unique characteristics, making it important to choose the right one to match a landscaping or construction project's specific aesthetic and functional requirements.
