Gravel is something not many people think about regularly. However, it does come to mind when doing some serious landscaping around the house or building a road. There are many uses for gravel around the house or construction site. There are also just as many types of gravel, each with its unique use.
Using Gravel at Home
There are many uses for gravel around the home. In landscaping, gravel cannot only be nice to look at; it can also serve a purpose. A good example is using pea gravel as mulch in landscaping around a structure. It will also improve drainage and repel moisture, keeping a building dry.
Another everyday use for gravel is for a driveway. Limestone gravel is typical for use in driveways and walkways. It, too, will aid in drainage and moisture control. Pea gravel is an attractive, useful gravel type that is great for around trees, flowerbeds, and even ponds. The uses for gravel around the home are endless.
Gravel in Heavy Construction
In professional and heavy construction, gravel of all types and sizes has many uses. Layers of gravel of various sizes are piled beneath building and road construction for structure and drainage reasons. Limestone is typically used in resurfacing “dirt” roads, while in Baltimore, pea gravel is used in many chips and seal resurfacing techniques where gravel is spread and then sealed with oil.
