A Pea Gravel Path


What is it about a pea gravel path? I find myself drawn to them....loving them...wanting one. It is March, so I though I would check in on my Home Goals for 2012.....I've accomplished one. On the list is a Potager Garden, the French word for a kitchen garden. The reason I keep calling mine "Potager", is because I am trying to remind myself that it needs some loveliness in it. Like a beautiful pea gravel path

Have you ever installed a pea gravel path? I tried...sort of...big failure. Do you have any tips?

Being the black thumb around here gives me very little say in what happens garden wise, but I would love a walled garden with pea gravel instead of a backyard. Grass is so overrated.

I love the look of pea gravel. Never used it - but since I can't keep a plant alive it might be just what I need in our backyard ;)

I love a pea gravel path...but I love a crushed blue stone path even more!!

Do they do pea gravel driveways? I think my husband wants to do something similar for our driveway (in the far off future).

Gorgeous! I can't even care for a cactus so landscaping is out of the question for me. I will have to enjoy the gardens of others I guess! xo

I love pea gravel paths!! We have a pea gravel driveway ... I love it ... not practical when it snows, it doesn't "plow up" well ... but I love it anyway. Will share photos when it looks pretty!!

Funny you mention pea gravel...we had 10 tons of pea gravel delivered last weekend and are having another 12 tons delivered on Saturday! We are using it to landscape the back section of our backyard.

Would that be beautiful?! I've got the addition of an herb garden on my 2012 list as well. Fingers crossed I can pull it off! Can't wait to see yours.

Pea gravel does look excellent, especially in a garden. Even if you do not have a garden, pea gravel looks great alongside the edge of a home. Nice photos!

Here along the coast of New England a lot of houses have crushed shell pathways and driveways. I think it is so pretty, but I wonder how practical it is when it snows?

Not familiar with that one, I'm on my way to check it out.

Debbie, I am on my way to your blog...what a coincidence that you stopped by today!

I would love to see pictures of it.

Kate said...

I've never tried to install one... but i agree - they sure are pretty!

Love that backyard with the green and white chairs and dark doors.
