I want to build two pathways on my property and was thinking of using pea gravel but someone mentioned that when leaves and snow get on it, getting both off it will put the gravel all over the place.
Any thoughts?

If I use slate, where is a good place to get some.

next, I have a concrete porch that is all rough on top - is refinishing it as simple as mixing concrete and smoothing it over the top?

Thanks
