Care of Gravel Areas

Generally: Regularly sweep and rake gravel to remove any rubbish and keep an even covering, particularly if car parking makes it uneven.

Do not allow leaves or other debris to lie or decompose on the gravel. A leaf blower can be useful to remove leaves in autumn.

AREAS WITH MEMBRANE UNDERNEATH: take care not to ruck up the membrane when planting or raking in these areas.

WEEDING: Remove weed seedlings as they appear- either using a hand fork or spot treatment with weed killer. (Take care to remove roots of perennial weeds).
