    Greetings, yes this is a walking path through the garden using 3/8" crushed granite. We like to use this smaller size in an angular form (crushed or fractured) instead of the round pea gravel as it knits together and is more stable underfoot. The round pea gravel in this size can often roll when walked on, and isn't as stable. You can get 3/8" size gravel in many colors from a landscape yard to suit the palette you're working with. Best of luck with your project!
