We have an area of about 8ft x 6ft behind the garage which is due to be gravelled tomorrow. I've ordered dark pink gravel, which I thought would be pretty, but DP thinks it might look very chavvy.

Opinions please! Thanks. smile

Can gravel be chavvy?
And didn't you discuss with DP first?!

Chavvy gravel wtf?

Yes, but he hadn't seen the sample (he's been away).

I didn't think you could have chavvy gravel until now either! I asked my friend and he said "Even you are not that tacky!"

Not sure about "Chavvy"

Though I am sure your gravel will be kitty litter as soon as the neighbourhood cats find it

Is it pink pink? Or just pink?

I have cats and they're not bothered about gravel. Phew!

Are you asking if a rather snobby unpleasant person will think that your gravel may have been near a council house whilst wearing Burberry, the answer is no to the latter and maybe to the former. I am not sure why you would care.

It's classed as red, but it's a v. deep pink really.

It sounds quite nice to me, I can just picture the shade you mean.

I care because I'm doing the garden up to put it on the market, so won't to make sure it won't put anyone off.

yes it is

BoojaBooja Fri 01-Jul-11 21:02:11

Thanks doozle, you've restored my faith in the gravel! grin

BoojaBooja Fri 01-Jul-11 21:02:48

Ah, maybe not by southeastastra's reply!

Why use the word chavvy though?

Do you mean will people be put off by my pink gravel. It certainly would not encourage me to buy a house but it would not put me off, I would just remove it.

I thought the gardening topic was nice and uncontroversial

BoojaBooja Fri 01-Jul-11 21:14:56

I'm not creating controversy, just wondering about my gravel!

I think if you really want gravel then pink gravel may look a bit 'softer' then grey gravel, i hate to see too much grey concrete/gravel in a garden. If its just a small area behind the garage (too shady to plant stuff?) then pink gravel sounds quite nice.
I've no idea if pink gravel is chavvy.

None too sure about pink gravel being chavvy, your choice sounds fine, but our vendors covered all the beds in bright orange mulch. How naice.

We still bought the place, but are busily shifting the bogan mulch.
