The Pea Gravel Grid is produced entirely from recycled plastic right here in the USA. Each roll measures 3.97' by 149' and the ultra strong fused hexagonal cell design provides superior strength and long term durability when compared to pavers which rely on linked circles or squares for strength. Each cell is 1" tall and 2 ¼” wide, because the cells on the grid are smaller, you may fill them smaller angular stones. The stones must be angular in shape and should range in size from 3/16" to 3/8". Additionally, they comply with ADA standards. They will have a great appearance and lots of traction for you and your guests to walk on.
They are offered in four different colors: black, grey, tan, and red.
Stakes are also included with the roll.

Note: The following guide provides an overview to installing a gravel pathway without any type of grid support. For well traveled pathways that will be infilled with pea gravel installing a grid will greatly help to provide enhanced support and a great reduction in gravel migration. See the install guide above for information on installing a pea gravel pathway with grid support.
So, you have worked long and hard to have a pristine lawn only to allow anyone to trample across it destroying your flowers and grass while leaving footprints everywhere. You need a pathway that clearly states “Keep Off The Grass”.
Short of building a wall with no access anywhere, it would be easier to lay a simple gravel pathway without costing tons of money. You could spend days and hours creating a cobblestone pathway that would break the bank, or choose a pathway that is economical and easy to install.
A gravel pathway made of pebbles or crushed shells is a great-looking path that is often used in gardens located around Asia and Europe and very few skills were required to install. You can install one of these pathways in the afternoon so you can enjoy walking through your yard and enjoying your gardens without causing any damage.
Pathway With Pea Gravel
Gravel Pathway: An Overview
A gravel pathway is not installed deeply into the ground, it's very close to the surface. All you need to do is dig a few inches to make room for the pebbles even in colder climates. The small pebbles will be able to move around during freezes and thaws while not cracking the surface that would take place using rigid materials such as pavers and stones. Also, a gravel pathway can be designed and shaped the way you want it. You can curve it around certain highlighted areas or with twists and turns for a very attractive look.
In colder climates with hard clay, the base is the soil. In most areas, including those with sandy soil, you will have to form a base of tamped-down stone which is a mixture of ¾-inch stones and stone dust. Placing a lining of landscape fabric over the base will prevent weeds from growing through the path.
Because gravel can move, you will need to install an edge to keep the gravel in place. Galvanized steel is flexible enough for the curves you might want to create. Another choice can be pressure-treated wood, cedar, bricks, plastic edging, and even cobblestone. Just make sure the gravel stops approximately 1/2 inch below the edging's top. The edging top should be flushed with your surrounding plant beds and the lawn otherwise the gravel will spill over the area. Also, you can make the pathway as wide as you like, 3 to 4 feet is average. Again, what you fill it with is your choice such as crushed shells from oysters to line the pathway, though many homeowners are now using crushed granite or lava stone.
Step One – Dig The Path's Shape
Mark off the location and shape of your pathway using a garden hose, a rope, or spray paint. You might want to consider line-marking paint so you can hold the can upside down while marking. Using a square-edged spade, remove the soil within the border to a depth of 4 inches.
Sept Two – Forming The Trench
To have the sides of the trench straight and the bottom even, use a square-edged spade. From time to time, Using a tape measure, verify the depth then smooth out the bottom with a steel rake followed by compacting the soil with a hand tamper. Your trench should be perfect.
When digging, place the soil on the tarp to make it easier to remove.
Step Three – Add The Crushed Stone
After you smooth and compact the soil in the bottom then cover it with 2½ inches of crushed stone. Rake it to ensure you have a level surface.

Step Four – Compact The Stone Base
You need to dampen the stone by lightly spraying the stone pack with a garden hose or watering can. Next, use a 6 to 8-inch square hand tamper to pound the stone pack into a hard, smooth surface. Dampening the crushed stone will keep the dust down and help during the compacting process.
Step Five – Lay Down The Landscape Fabric
It's time to roll out the fabric over the compacted stone pack with the shiny side up. To shape the fabric around curved sections make relief cuts along both the inside and outside edges. At the cuts on the inside overlap the fabric. Make sure the fabric will open on the cuts on the outside Use pins or spikes to keep the fabric taut so it cannot bunch up through the finished layer of gravel. You can allow the edging to work double time by installing it over the fabric and letting the spikes push through.
Step Six – Install The Edging
The template, or spreader bar, should hold the parallel lengths of edging lined up at a 3-feet apart. Make sure the cuts are wide and deep enough to slide over the galvanized steel edging Take two lengths of edging and join them together following the manufacturer's instructions.The inside of the trench should have edging pieces, resting on top of the fabric. Slide the 2x3 template into each piece of edging across the first section of the path. Use a wood block and a hammer, and hammer the edging into the ground through the fabric.

Step Seven – Tap The Edging Down
Tap the edging into the ground using a scrap-wood tapping block and make sure it's going in straight and not leaning to one side. Never hammer directly onto the steel edging or it can damage the zinc-galvanized protective coating and end up rusting. Backfill along the backside of the edging after installing the edging.
Step Eight – Fill The Pathway With Gravel
Pour enough gravel to just short of 1/2-inch at the top of the edging. Rake the gravel out evenly making certain none of the landscape fabric will show through. It's ready for you to landscape the pathway with flower beds or sod. To keep the path up, take care of the path by occasionally raking it to keep it smooth and refilling it with more gravel when it's needed.
