Luna doesn't seem to mind the gravel in the path. She doesn't track in near the amount of mud as in the past. Obviously weeds pop up in the path.
They are easily removed.
Where the three paths converge from the back of the garden, from the gate and off the patio I placed a round (?) section of stepping stone.
It solves the problem of what to do where three paths meet.
We had these old timbers lying around the garden needing to be put to use. So I ran them along the edge of the path to contain the pea gravel. I think the gravel will stay in place anyway becasue this path is indented somewhat what with all the travel on it.
So what I would say is if you have a difficult path to try to keep mulched pea gravel is a good remedy. The pea gravel blends right in, stays where you put it, easy to walk on, and the best part is that it is inexpensive.
