Using Gravel for Temporary Paths on Allotments
« on: May 25, 2019, 13:15 »
There are two sorts of paths on allotments and in gardens. The permanent paths, like a path between plots and temporary paths laid to divide growing areas that may well be moved after a year or so. This question came in about using gravel paths for those temporary paths that I found interesting.

I agree with the points you've made, John.  It is a nightmare to try to move paths with gravel on them, and I find that gravel sticks to your boots if you have mud on the treads   :ohmy:
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Gravel paths are not allowed here in Blackpool.

Is that because you like sand? :)

Where I am in South Wales you can take a trip down to a "cockling" plant and get a trailer load of cockle shells very cheap.

They make excellent paths once they are tamped down.

I suppose they'd help raise the pH too :)
