Jersey Shore Gravel
As you might have guessed, Jersey Shore gravel gets its name from the Jersey coastline. The Jersey shore coastline is marked with a stone aggregate that is in various hues of brown, white, tan, gold, and yellow. This type of gravel creates a tranquil landscape while giving off an inviting vibe to your guests.
White Marble Chips
Even though white marble chips are usually used as an alternative to organic mulch, they can also create an ethereal driveway. White marble chips offer plenty of visual interest because despite the name they have streaks of gray.
