Creating a low maintenance garden with decorative gravel is easy to do. Gravel is available in a dizzying array of colors and sizes that can fit into almost anyone's garden plans.

I've never done this myself, only watched the guys do it, I'll try to explain the best I can.

Level your path area making sure that it is even.

Lay out your boundary using lawn timbers or 2x4 planks of wood.

Add your gravel and tada!

1) Stake out your path

2) Form the boundry. Most people use paving or landscape bricks.

3) Place an underlayment cloth along the path. Many people use a black-colored lanscaping weed barrier. The cloth prevents the gravel from mixing with the dirt below. A very important step for a long lasting gravel pathway.

4) Pour gravel onto the pathway.

5) Spread the gravel with a garden rake.
