Gravel Pathway Erosion


Hi All,

I have a sloped backyard with a gravel pathway which has slowly been eroding after each rain storm. I have a gutter end-spout that is on the elevated portion of the pathway...thus, the main reason why water naturally travels down the pathway.

What are my options to limit or even eliminate this issue in the future?
1) Would a catch basin be effective?
2) Attach an even longer gutter downspout that carries ALL the water down and away from the path?
3) Or should I completely rebuild this and install a Honeycomb Pathway Stabilizer Grid (with a heavy-duty landscape fabric barrier as the base)? https://www.amazon.com/Core-Path-Sta.../dp/B013KOTO40

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Gravel Pathway Erosion


Does the yard drop off on the other side of the path or is the neighbours yard?

I would run the downspout thru the deck to a pipe running under the deck and then go under the path to a day light opening on the other side.

Re: Gravel Pathway Erosion


Ya, the more water you can keep off the walkway the better! Moving the downspout should be a priority.
