There are many types of landscape gravel you can use to enhance the appearance of your Albuquerque homes yard. The best gravel for your landscaping needs will vary based on the portion of yard the gravel will cover.
Landscape gravel is simply crushed stone that is used as a ground cover in landscape applications. Local landscape gravels are made up of either granite, limestone or quartzite and will last a lifetime, making it an economical choice for property owners who want a beautiful landscape without the maintenance or watering required with a lawn.
Crusher fines are typically minus and are ideal for walkways, driveways or even for a clean, minimalist ground cover look. They hold up well to foot traffic and because theyre so small, create a solid, flat surface that prevents slips and trips. True Crusher fines, like Amaretto brown and Blue Sais, are ideal for driveways, parking areas or walkways. These are fines created from the crushing of solid quartzite rock, creating six-sided fractured rock that locks together and creates a solid yet permeable surface. True Crusher fines do not contain any organic materials or clays, and naturally inhibit weed growth.
to 1 and 1 2 ground covers are consistently sized and are great for covering an entire landscape with gravel. They come in a nice variety of colors and materials. Larger sizes of gravel help to slow evaporation in the desert climate, reducing your water usage.
Larger sized gravel like 2 4 or 4 8 are ideal for sloped areas or drainage ravines where a large stone is needed to hold the shape of severe slopes, or to create a natural dry stream bed within your landscape design.
A xeriscape landscape is one that requires little to no irrigation. One to two-inch gravel is a great size for this type of yard as it helps retain moisture to the roots. One to four-inch rocks can be used to highlight feature areas of your xeriscape project.
River rock or La Paz Pebbles are often used around flower beds and in the bottom of planters to prevent the growth of weeds and improve drainage. Crushed rock may be used for driveways, and lava rock is an excellent alternative to mulch.
