Will pea gravel be a good surface for my patio?


Answer by  acornwell82 (32)

Yes, pea gravel will make a good surface for a patio. Pea gravel consists of round, smooth stones, and is both aesthetically pleasing and pleasant to walk on. It is low maintenance, attractive and environmentally-friendly.

Pea gravel does not make a real good surface for things like that it is very hard to walk on and it won't stay in one spot it keeps moving as it is walked on.

No, A much more stable and easy to maintain surface would be traditional concrete or possibly stone pavers. The pea gravel will be very difficult to maintain.


Answer by  Jermbubba (95)

most likely yes, its very easy to keep clean, free from leaves and weeds. If weeds begin to grow just spray them and rake away.

You can use it but I dont reccomend it.If you try to set up a table and chairs on it they wont be level.

Yes, I have just learned that light coloured pea gravel will work best. Base layer of other aggregate gravel needs to be compacted in first, then apply weed cloth, then 1&1/2" of pea gravel. Border it so surrounding soil doesn't sink into it. I'm still learning.
