I have been mulling it over for a while, but still can't decide the best aggregate to use to create a 'desert' sort of landscape. Currently I am thinking a red granite (such as http://onlinegravel.onlineturf.co.uk/pa ... tegory=781), with some bigger York stone type rocks (which I have plenty of hanging around the garden) to break it up a bit. Do you think this would work?
I personally prefer the green granite, the red looks like an unfinished road....but it is personal choice
my name is flounder, but you can call me.............flounder! (or Gary, just don't call me late for dinner)
I prefer something lighter, sort of 'buff' colour as it shows off the plants better. It's a personal choice. I think mine is 'calico'.
Growing the improbable - not the impossible
Darker colours will attract the heat more, but release it quicker at night. I like the red granite, but would go for a sparser covering mixed in with pea gravel. I have Cotswold chippings (white) which larger sandstone rocks placed at intervals.
