What Is Pea Gravel Concrete?

Pea gravel concrete is cement with the addition of small pieces of gravel composite which lend texture to the final installation of a project. Pea gravel pieces ranging in size from about one-eighth to one-fourth inch are added to the concrete recipe with cement and water.

This type of concrete is often chosen by homeowners and contractors for above ground projects where looks are important. Pea gravel is commonly used for patios and garden stones. For driveways and walkways, the bumpy texture offers more traction than smooth concrete. Pea gravel drains well. It's a cost effective choice that is sturdy and durable.
