Chad what color of pea gravel did you used in the picture....I'm guessing all blue by the looks of the picture?

It is our standard local pea gravel. It has many shades of colors in it. Some are greys,pinks, and blacks. No blues although. If you call a Phoenix Conrete company and ask for Pea Gravel this is what you will get.

How do you keep gravel from washing out on a steep slope?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to How to Work With a Landscape Pro
Set a budget. Just as with interior design and remodeling projects, have a firm idea of what you want to spend before you contact a pro. Not only will this give the landscaper a starting point and a helpful set of parameters, it will save both of you frustration down the road. You don't want to fall in love with sketches of lavish flowers and stately trees, only to find out they're beyond reach, and a pro doesn't want to waste time drawing up detailed plans that will later have to be scratched. With a target cost in hand, a pro can also suggest creative solutions that may never have come into play otherwise, helping you stretch your budget to get the most mileage out of each dollar.Scout out potential sources. Do you have friends whose gardens blooms with lavish color or seem to win "Yard of the Month" once a season? Ask whether they use professional help, and if so, put those pros on your short list. Local botanical gardens and homebuilders' associations are other good places to seek names.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Create a Fire-Safe Garden — With Style
Reduce fuel ladders. Remove overhanging branches that touch or sweep near the roof or ground. If not trimmed properly, they will act as a fire bridge, sending flames from ground to tree to roof. Your goal is to reduce the connections between fuel sources.
Houzz added this to Xeriscape
A xeriscape typically uses decomposed granite, gravel and other mulch to keep moisture from quickly evaporating from the soil. Large stones add maintenance-free interest to low-water gardens.Browse more photos of low-water, low-maintenance xeriscapes
