|Charleston, Carolyne Roehm (brick pavers)|
|Watermill, Tom Britt (pea gravel)|
No doubt, some of my favorite gardens and landscapes use pea gravel , which comes in all kinds of colors and stones... the thicker the application the more I like it! Is it a bit of trouble? Perhaps, but consider how much more aesthetic this Atlanta groundscape would be with a beige pea gravel drive...the gravel would blend so beautifully with the stucco on the house.
My second choice would be a brick paver in a herringbone pattern, as the designer Carolyne Roehm used in her Charleston garden. Love the sound of the crunch or the texture, of gravel or brick! Enjoy! DF *****
