Often described as a “ball bearing” type of stone. Pea Gravel is often used for similar application as Cracked Gravel in garden beds, around homes and along fences as a decorative stone, however due to the product being round it has the potential to roll or shift easier than Cracked Gravel will.
It is a good alternative to mulching as it does not degrade over time and allows great water flow while providing the soil profile with some protection from the sun. Weedmat can be placed underneath to stop the aggregate from mixing in with the existing sand, and to help control weeds. Usually installed around 100mm Depth.
It can also be installed as a footpath or driveway, although due to the product having no dust/fines it remains loose on the surface.
