Pea Gravel Patio

After struggling for years with the lawn area right off our deck, we decided to put in a patio. With a very limited budget we decided on pea gravel as the most bang for our buck! We couldn't be happier with the outcome. I even spruced up my lounge chairs which in bad need of some attention!
A relaxing space to hang out in the sun.
The before pictures will give you an idea of just how bad it was! Not even new sod would grow here. There is so much foot traffic has this is the only way off the deck into the yard, it really didn't stand a chance.
So much better!

    Great fix! I think every yard has dome spot that drives us crazy! And unfortunately, it is never around the corner of the house, but somewhere that we have to look at every day!. Enjoy our pretty place!

    How thick do most of you put your pea gravel?
