Stunning Ways To Incorporate Decorative Aggregates Into Your GardenPosted on - 08.09.23
Most gardens are covered with luscious grass, however, it requires regular cutting and maintenance to keep it looking its best. Adding decorative aggregates can transform your garden and add some character to any green spaces. Low-maintenance, drought-resistant and ideal for all sizes of gardens, there are many ideas for using decorative aggregates as part of your garden. To support this, we have pulled together a list of stunning ways to incorporate decorative aggregates into your garden.
You can use gravel or pebbles to create beautiful pathways in your garden. They not only provide a practical walkway for homeowners and visitors, but also add textures and visual interest to your outdoor space. You can choose to create a straight path from one side of your garden to the next or create a winding pathway, passing through multiple features of your garden such as flower beds, water features and seating areas.
Outdoor Seating Areas
Similar to pathways, decorative aggregates are one of the best materials to use to create an outdoor seating area. If you are looking for a cost-effective option, aggregates are more budget-friendly than concrete, tarmac, paving slabs or decking. Once laid properly, aggregates can stop the growth of weeds. We recommend preparing the area first with a weed control fabric before topping it with aggregates to act as a barrier, preventing weeds from growing through. As a result, it keeps your outdoor seating area free from weeds and saves you the hassle of spraying weeds more often.
By placing gravel or pebbles along the edges of your flower beds or garden borders, you will define those areas and create stylish edging. Because decorative aggregates are porous, they will also provide natural drainage, ensuring your surrounding plants receive the hydration they need to thrive. With clean and well-defined edging, your plants will thrive and the overall aesthetic appeal of your garden will be improved.
Highlight Garden Features
Decorative aggregate can be used in or around garden features such as flower beds, plant pots or ponds, streams or water ornaments to highlight them from amongst other areas and cover the top layer of soil. This not only helps with moisture retention but also adds contrast, texture and colour. It can also be useful for indoor plants or container plants, where the aggregates provide a decorative element whilst also serving a practical purpose.
