The 3 Most popular Uses for Gravel in Portland

May, 2014 by Alma Abell

Gravel is both rough and soft, which sounds like a terribly frustrating contradiction. But it is a certain state or property that is very well appreciated in modern garden design. Gravel has this nice look to it, but that is not the only reason it has risen to be one of the most popular options in gardening.

1. Cost

Gravel is not very expensive. On a surface level, this is important. New gardeners are allured by its low cost compared to other options. It is also a substantial cost difference, because gravel needs to coat the entire garden space. It is not just a small insignificant purchase that is only made once, but one that needs to be revisited option and coats a large space.

2. Overall Decor and Design in Oregon

Gravel in Portland looks to be very casual as if natural and ‘just there.’ but it can also be crisp and defiant. These two decorative features gives gravel a distinctive versatility. Both images can be harnessed in a certain way. For example, to achieve a more naturalistic gravel look one may fit the garden with native plants. This makes it seem as if it grew on its own, and some cohesive trimming and maintaining will keep it pristine. Yet complementing the garden with some non-native and very bright arrangements will play off the gravel brilliantly. See, two very different and seemingly oppositional strategies both work sensationally with gravel. Its versatility is unrivaled.

3. Flexibility

The fact is, people love gravel’s flexibility. It can conform to any gardening shape, fitting into a very naturalistic style as well as one that is bright, flavorful, and very intentional. Gravel in Portland also has low maintenance in general which helps follow its overall flexibility. It has a very quick drainage, which means it works excellently in high rain regions of the world.

Modern gardening includes an assortment of options that allows gardeners to toy with the conventions of wildlife, non-native plants, and decor extensions. Gardening could become a hobby or a fulltime project. The best thing is that one could take it in either direction with relative ease.
