A maintenance-friendly paving solution for people who want to create beautiful and natural paths around their yard as well as their garden. This article will show you the steps to lay pea gravel right the first time.
Use 14mm of chipping. The smaller size of the gravel will last as long, and it is more likely to disperse. This is why it’s more difficult to decide on.
The next thing to do is determine where on your lawn the gravel path is going to be as well as to create the path. Make sure to measure everything at least twice, and utilize chalk stakes and fishline for marking which area you’ll use for the pathway.
Clean the area from plants and weeds, then put on a weed-proof membrane. There is no need to dig up the dirt for removing weeds by using the weed membrane.
The next step is to put in the gravel. Lay the gravel out on the surface. Use a shovel or an rake, to spread it out evenly. The thickness of the gravel should be between 50 and 50 millimeters. This will allow you to make sure you don’t feel like you’re at the end of the pathway and also that you’re not sinking every step.
In the end, wash the surface to get rid of dust . This will make the gravel appear clean. You now have a practical and aesthetically pleasing pathway.
