Gravel can be the ideal solution for mulching paths, patios, and even some types of garden beds in the landscape. A weed-free gravel area requires good installation practices and some ongoing maintenance.
1. Choose Dense Gravel
The type of gravel you choose can impact how easily weeds can invade the site. The ideal gravel is either small and dense, like pea gravel, or large and dense with angular sides so it fits together tightly with few spaces between rocks.
