The Q&A Archives: pea gravel as my ground cover

Question: I am a beginning gardener. I would like to know if pea gravel would be better then putting mulch down. thank you

Answer: Mary,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Pea gravel is okay but mulch decomposes slowly over time thus feeding and improving the soil.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
