What is better grass or gravel/rock walkway??
I would love some opinions!!
My husband is in the process of building me a wonderful new raised bed garden. I will try and put the picture in at the bottom:)
We are torn with what to do with the area around the beds. We will be putting up a small picket fence with an arbor on the right side of the boxes. It will go from the corner of our shop to the side of our yard, behind where I took the picture from. This will separate our backyard from our garden.
So, the question is, do we leave it in grass, or would it be easier and look better with gravel and rock walkways between the beds???
Has anyone had experience with the rock walkway or gravel between the beds? Does it get terribly hot in summer?
I like the grass, it seems cooler. But, my hubby thinks the rock would look better and be much easier to keep up.
We also plan on putting rock on the sides of the beds. That way the wood can eventually rot away, and we will still have our beds, but made of rock!!
I would love to hear what you all think!!
