RE: Progress on the garden wall/pea gravel


I personally hate pea gravel- or for that matter pretty much any gravel. I
recall having to weed the gravel driveway whe I was a kid.  Was entirely
senseless, because new weeds/grass sprouted up the next day.

Theresa,

The worst thing about pea gravel around stones is that they act like
marbles. One tiny little bit of gravel on a stone and you're sliding. I've
had some of my worst falls that way.
