Dryscape & Drainage – Outdoor Living Tip of the Day


As professional landscapers, we know that proper drainage is essential for maintaining a healthy and sustainable outdoor space. Using river rock and pea gravel is an excellent way to enhance the drainage capabilities of your landscape.

River rock and pea gravel are popular hardscaping materials that can be used in a variety of landscaping applications, including as drainage solutions. Both materials allow water to flow through them freely, preventing the buildup of water that can lead to flooding, erosion, and soil compaction.

One way to incorporate river rock or pea gravel into your landscape is by creating a dry creek bed. This technique involves using river rock to create a natural-looking dry streambed that channels water away from the landscape. The pea gravel can be used to fill in the gaps between rocks and create a uniform look. This technique not only enhances drainage but also adds visual interest to the landscape.

Another way to use river rock and pea gravel is to install them around the base of your home’s foundation. This will help to direct water away from the foundation, preventing water damage and potential foundation issues.

When using river rock or pea gravel for drainage solutions, it’s important to use the appropriate size and type of rock for the intended purpose. For example, larger river rocks are better suited for creating a dry creek bed, while smaller pea gravel is ideal for filling in gaps and creating a uniform look.

At our landscaping company, we have extensive experience in designing and installing drainage solutions using river rock and pea gravel. We can help you select the right materials and create a design that will enhance the drainage capabilities of your landscape while adding visual appeal.

In summary, river rock and pea gravel are versatile and attractive hardscaping materials that can be used to improve the drainage of your landscape.
