Ready, Set, GROW! rustic garage and shed

Ready, Set, GROW!

We transformed our lonely shed, abandoned at the edge of a gravel driveway into a food source and cozy retreat from the summer sun.

what size gravel did you use? - Hi i am adding gravel to my driveway, what size did you use here? I like the way it looks very natural. Also do you have a source for buying the stone? I am in Falmouth. Thanks,

Thanks so much, I also found Portland gravel on Mayall Rd in Gray.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Although getting rid of the expanse of gravel and adding visual interest were the couple's main motivations, Joseph and Robin both love to garden and wanted a space for growing their favorite plants. Joseph is Italian and loves to plant tomatoes, cucumbers and basil. Robin wanted a special spot for shade-tolerant plants. Creating a lush haven around this 12-foot by 16-foot shed was the perfect solution.
