    It's NOT granite.

    The gravel is 3/4" and smaller "sharp" gravel, the landscape architect says the round gravel does not stay in place and had less secure footing (slippery).

    They look like Connecticut Yankee delphiniums. They are very pretty!

A secret garden getaway. This bucolic side yard in Sacramento features a gravel ground cover, a variety of trees, plants and flowers and some outdoor furniture to create a quaint hangout.Tell us: Have you added outdoor furniture to your side yard? We want to see your setup.

8. Sneak in a side yard dining area. Pea gravel is perfect for making the most of small and unusually shaped outdoor spaces since it’s simple to spread out wherever you need it. And in a side yard like the one shown here, using gravel as both a flooring and path material keeps the compact space feeling surprisingly open. A petite table and chairs make a sweet spot for sipping morning coffee or enjoying a special dinner for two. Things to remember before you gravel up your side yard include:Is this a path for wheeling your garbage cans? If so, a solid flooring material may be preferable.Consider adding a transitional flooring near the entrance to your home to keep gravel from getting tracked indoors.8 New Uses for Your Side Yard

Allow for impromptu vignettes. Romantics are generally spontaneous people who enjoy thoughtful surprises. An impromptu lunch served on a portable table may be just the thing to set the tone for an afternoon. Perhaps next time the table is around another bend in a different section of the garden. Good-quality table linens, flatware and candles are all appropriate. No paper plates are allowed.

Side yards make great outdoor spaces. Generally, any side yard that is 10 feet wide or wider has a lot of potential. But keep in mind that side yards are commonly used for walkways, so it is important to maintain at least 3 feet of width for a walkway around your seating area.See more ideas for a side yard

Dining area. Clearly, there's not room for a huge dining set, the kind of teak collection with armchairs so heavy that they're hard to move. But that's actually why I love this space. The green wall is a privacy buffer, but it is also the backdrop to the bench for two that's situated to look into the space. Combine the bench with a café table and two bistro chairs, add some pillows and table linens — and it's an instant gathering place for four friends to enjoy an al fresco meal.The crushed rock is a versatile solution, doubling as both flooring and path material. It's also simple to rearrange this seating, move the pots around and bring in a few stools to accommodate a larger party.

While this small yard is casual and colorful, it's still very French. In a small space, adding color through flowers and linens gives a country feel that's equally as inviting as that of the previous space.

The fragrant garden. While fragrant plants are welcome anywhere, pay special attention to the entrance of your home and any outdoor seating areas you frequently use. These prime spots are perfect for citrus trees, lavender, jasmine, honeysuckle, roses or herbs.
