What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Mulch for beds In garden beds, use gravel as a top-dressing as you would use a bark mulch. After planting, spread a two-and-a-half centimetre layer of gravel over the soil’s surface, keeping small circles around the bases of trees and shrubs gravel-free. Don’t pile on the gravel much thicker, or you can cause soil compaction. The result is a crisp and clean look that shows off plants and also helps suppress weeds and prevent water loss through evaporation.
