I'm having a bit of trouble deciding whether to purchase a tonne of gravel for my front garden where I manage my vegetable plot. Before you ask, y plots in the front garden as it's the side that receives the most sunlight!
I have raised beds with wooden surrounds which work well, and am looking to surround them this year with Gravel, to make the walkways between look a lot more presentable.
My local distributor is kicking out some really cheap gravel which I've really grown quite fond of, especially the Moonstone chippings because I think they'll go really well with the colour of the wood on my raised beds.
The problem I've got, is that my house is on a side street which links to the local secondary school, so the pathways can, in a morning, be often overrun and busy with teens from the local school. My bungalow is raised with a raised front garden as it's built upon a hill meaning the gravel (if I were to purchase) is the perfect height for them to reach over and throw it around etc.
Does anyone else suffer from this? Or if not, can anyone suggest a way to avoid this?
