Happy New Year! If you’re looking for a brand new project this January in White Marsh, then it could be time to consider adding gravel to your landscape. Since gravel is not a naturally-occurring element of your home’s landscape, it’s often included as part of what is known as hardscaping. Here are some tips for how to get the most out of it.
Find a Theme You Want
Even though winter will persist for the next few months, spring isn’t that far away. Start rejuvenating your White Marsh landscape by picking out the theme you want to have. One way to incorporate plenty of gravel into your landscape and hardscape design is to consider adding a courtyard. Patios, walls, and fountains are other structures made of gravel that you can use. You will need to think about the aesthetic effect you would like to achieve.
When you want to have gravel walls or patios in your backyard, you’ll also need to think about how the drainage will be affected. Using some slopes can help the water run off instead of forming into pools.
Consult Expert Advice
You’ll need a flat and level surface before you can do anything with gravel, even if all you want to install is a walkway. You will need to speak to experts to get their input on what you should do.
Work with Nature
Working with nature may sound, well, natural. But all the clean lines in the world won’t help save your new hardscape from feeling artificial and unnatural. You’ll need to add some bends, curves, slopes, and arcs along the way.
Switch from Grass to Gravel
If you are tired of maintaining your lawn, then don’t hesitate to get rid of it entirely. Who knows, you might even start a trend in your White Marsh neighborhood! One way to do this is to switch from using grass as part of your landscape to using gravel. Doing this can help you save water and decrease the amount of chemicals you use in your yard. Plus, you don’t only need to use ordinary gravel. You can also consider using pea gravel or pulverized river rock as well.
