Create a Gravel Garden

Don’t have the green thumb you need to cultivate lush flower beds? Perhaps you’re thinking, “Forget about lush. I’d settle for living.” A gravel garden is the simple solution to these rocky situations.

Gravel Gardens Made Easy

Add some extra pizzazz to your Indiana landscape with a gravel garden. The prime time to plant the garden is the beginning of spring, so follow this tutorial on the next sunny day in Indy.

While the name “gravel garden” doesn’t sound too alluring, these rocky oases can be very beautiful. Spruce yours up by researching different gravel textures, sizes, and color schemes. We have several at Garrity Stone, including Missouri Mist, Autumn Blend, River Rock 5L, and more.

Low-Maintenance Plants

The next step is the best part: choosing what to plant. Keep in mind a gravel garden is designed for drought-tolerant plants. The following are all excellent candidates:

  • Blanket Flower
  • Pine-Leaf Penstemon
  • Agastache
  • Russian Sage
  • Lavender

These flowers were featured in an article titled “The Best Drought-Tolerant Perennials” on Better Homes and Gardens®. View the article for even more ideas.
