    I have grassy patch (2x1 metre) outside my front door that i need to stop the local youths playing on. Are the larger stones ie. cotswold chippings harder to walk on ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Large round pebbles stuck in mortar used to be all the rage

    Plant it with pyracanthus or similar.

    Stones, especially if loose, are liable to end up through your windows.

    As mentioned, duck stones set in mortar are the best bet.
