It’s one of those areas that just don’t know what to do with. If you do nothing, water run-off continues to erode away at the gravel and soil around the culvert. But what do you do with it? It’s not an area that is conducive to planting plants as it’s usually a poor soil base and hard to maintain adequate water.
This is one solution: landscape the area with dry stacked stone. Properly installed, this dry stacked stone around the culvert will prevent erosion in an aesthetically pleasing way.
To speak to our landscape design specialist, give us a call at 540-654-5410 or fill out the information request form, and we’ll get back to you right away. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, we also have the stone available for pick-up at our nursery located at 544 Truslow Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22406.
