What are the benefits of Garden Gravel?

There are many benefits of decorative gravel around your garden.  It is cost effective as it is cheaper than concrete, and the installation is easier and quicker, thus reducing labour costs.  It means using your shovel, wheelbarrow, and friends to help lay the garden gravel chippings. 

Low Maintenance is another great benefit for gravel chippings.  The only thing needed would be to top up the gravel for pathways or driveways, fill any ruts.  Remember to lay some weed control fabric before laying the gravel and that will also help keep weeds at bay.

Drainage is one of the more common challenges of many gardens, and garden gravel can help in that area.  Water will be able to flow through the gravel reducing the risks of puddles, flooding, or erosion. 

Garden gravel is also eco-friendly as they allow water to recharge the groundwater and not add to the stormwater runoff.  Decorative garden gravel is also a natural product and does not require any intensive production to make.

Garden gravel is one of the best choices for gardens.  The benefits of decorative garden stones are one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the garden.  Imagine how much better that driveway looks with a great layer of gravel chippings, or that new pathway in the garden that brightens the entire area.  Selling or renting your premises?  Why not tidy yup the garden by using garden gravel.

We have a calculator for this below – remember that it is a guide.  The depth is always important when calculating how much decorative gravel you will need for the garden and the area that needs the gravel.  So, make sure that you have your areas to be covered measured well.

Chip Your Garden with Gravel from Hedgehogs Nursery

Gravel is used to create attractive and functional areas of the garden such as driveways or footpaths. It’s also used to spruce up existing borders, flower beds or existing landscape. If there are weeds that need to be kept at bay, lay your selected garden gravel on top of a membrane which helps prevent weed growth, but allows rain water to soak through to the soil and disperse naturally. At Hedgehogs Nursery Glenrothes we have a wide range of the most popular garden gravel to suit many garden designs and landscaping projects!

Overall, using gravel in your garden is a great way to spruce up your garden by adding colour and shape by using various kinds of decorative gravel.  Creating pathways or even driveways with garden gravel and hard wearing driveway gravel will add something special to your space.

Remember to put down some weed control membrane before laying gravel to help suppress weeds from coming through. Weed control fabrics also allow water to escape rather than collecting in pools.

All garden gravel listed is stocked here at Hedgehogs Nursery in Glenrothes Fife for pick-up or local delivery to the Fife area. If you have a trailer, you can bring and load it. Call for delivery prices, or if you have any questions.
