Gravel plays an important role in the manufacture of concrete and construction of light traffic roads, including driveways. If constructed properly, these driveways can last longer and cost less than other types.
Another use of gravel is in gardens, where it can become part of attractive landscapes. Gardeners can colour coordinate it to the best effect. As for shape, use angular gravel to ensure paths do not disintegrate over time. This type interlocks to create a compact and durable surface.
