Gravel's earthy texture, its give underfoot, and its crunchy sound are the reasons why this oldest of hardscapes will always
be perceived as the softest of paving materials. This gravel entry is a clean casual foil for plant textures and colors. Japanese
silver grass billows over the basalt wall at right beside climbing hydrangea. 'Maori Sunrise' New Zealand flax in a container
punctuates the small pond in the middle while 'Palace Purple' heuchera mugho pine and gunnera fill a bed near the house. Cotoneaster
spills onto gravel.
