Using rocks, stones and gravel is a great way to bring a unique touch to your landscaping projects. Gravel and stones have a more natural and organic look, which can give your garden an elegant touch. Unlike concrete or brick, gravel can be moved or completely removed if you decide to change your design later. Stones, rocks and gravel also allow for better drainage and come in a wide variety of colours and styles.
Types of Gravel for Your Edmonton Home
When it comes to gravel, not all stones are alike. The gravel you use on your driveway is different from gravel you can use for landscaping projects. To educate you before your purchase, here are the different types of gravel and what they can be used for:
This type of gravel is often best for driveways. It is screened and sized so it is ideally suited for construction. It is often made of limestone, granite, gneiss, or trap rock. It comes in gray and white hues and can also be used in landscaping or as the first level base for paving stones.
Washed Clean Stone
This is similar to crushed stone, except it is cleaned of impurities. You get the pure stone without any material or debris in the gravel.
This gravel is often used for landscaping projects and it is characterized by its small, round, and smooth appearance. It also comes in multiple colours, as opposed to simply white and gray. The texture and colour is what stands out and makes it great for landscaping.
White Marble Chips
This is often used for paths and walkways because the surface has an aesthetically pleasing shimmer. This helps to reflect sunlight and offer an elegant look to any property.
This type of stone aggregate is very small and has a yellow, gold, or tan hue. It reminds many people of sand at a beach. It can be great for driveways.
