Pea gravel is a staple I’ve seen in many French gardens. There is something so charming about stepping into a cozy courtyard with its lush greenery, welcoming seating, and pea gravel patio. It feels very distinguished and romantic – but did you know that it’s also so cost-efficient? If you are wanting to add some of this old-world feel to your own house, it’s so affordable and easy to incorporate into your own backyard design.

Create a small fire pit area, or fill in the whole half of the backyard for a low maintenance but impressive look.

Here are 10 favorite pea gravel patios I’ve come across that are pin-worthy and give major inspiration for my dream home.

Pavers on gravel are another way to spruce up your walkway and really give your home great curb appeal.

If you are going for the cottage/French country look, gravel surrounded by a wild and organically flowing flower garden is a must.

If you prefer things more polished, you’ve got to go with perfectly trimmed boxwood hedges and planters to edge your gravel patio.

Hydrangeas are so gorgeous and are perfect for recreating an English Cottage vibe!
