Our core gravel driveway has been in place for 4 years now and is on a very steep slope (roughly 18 degrees). This is a re-do of an existing driveway and prior to installing the core gravel grids we did have significant erosion problems. Our gravel stays in place now and I can drive my one ton pickup truck (7800 lbs unloaded) with no slippage.
Shelter Island Historical Society Installed Spring 2019 "Product is amazing!". It was everything you promised it would be, super fast and so easy. We had to access underneath a section about a week after install was complete. Just went over, un-clipped the section, did the work and put it right back in you could NEVER be able to tell. Highly recommend this product. Will be ordering again.
I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your product! In an age of products over promising and under delivering, it's great when you come across one that truly lives up to its advertising.
Your CORE gravel panels were shipped fast, easy to install, easy to cut (I used tin snips and a utility knife), and easy to fill. Once they were installed they totally changed the structure of the gravel making it a very usable space.
I would be happy to recommend your company and product to anyone. Please feel free to use me a reference at anytime.
Our CORE Gravel pathway project is coming along nicely. We plan to extend the path into the back yard and create the patio back there.
The CORE path has been super easy to install and work with. This area has a pretty steep slope and the CORE path is performing very well on this terrain.
The installation went smoothly and quickly. We completed the grid install for an 1800 sq ft courtyard (entire surface) and 70 feet of the steep driveway (2 ~40" tracks with occasional bridge) in a day. There was no movement with a 65 excavator with rubber tracks on it (no track rotation in place). We are very happy with the system and will be looking to add more.
We just purchased our home and were having issues with our driveway drainage, as it has such a steep slope. Your product is amazing, and now the area drains properly and looks great! Thanks for all your help - we had exactly the right amount of tiles for the job!
Really love this product! We struggled with our parking area for years – gravel washing away in heavy rain, muddy spots, and weeds growing up through the gravel. Putting down the 60-40 CORE Gravel product was a great decision. We no longer lose gravel in heavy rain. In fact, we're facing our second winter with this surface and have not had to add any gravel, even after repeated snow plowing. The surface always looks great and, with a little raking, makes an attractive social space. We followed CORE's surface prep instructions and have had no performance or aesthetic issues.
This install of my CORE Path Foundations was easy, and I able to complete it on my own. I used a sod cutter from Home Depot to create the base for my 36 " wide path. I removed the sod and raked to remove any lumps. Then I laid down the core material and linked them together (this took less than half an hour). At the corners I cut the system with tinships. Then I got the gravel from Black Gold for only $20 and started at the beginning of the path to dump small amounts of the gravel levelling out as I went. Once it was all done I racked some of the gravel to cover the edge right up to the grass.
I was amazed at how easy it was to do and the whole system seems very forgiving in that the surface preperation is minimal.
Everything went well with our CORE Path Project.. The product worked exactly how you said it would, it went down easily and stabilzied the gravel nicely.
I will definitely be offering this as an option to my clients in the future.
We installed your CORE Path 38-18 system ths year for our clients.
The clients are absolutely pleased with my suggestion to go with a simple permeable solution. Your product covers all their outdoor needs for there new patio space I've created for them. It created a stabilized and beautiful area. They plan to do many more projects around the home with your products.
Thank you again for your help and support!
Caroline: I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our Core Driveway installation. We are constantly moving our trailers on and off the parking deck. The Core Driveway is stable, secure and is coping well with the uneven surfaces. Thanks again.
Hi Core Glow!
I’m thrilled to report our deck privacy screen made with 6 of the Cabo Modinex screens/panels is complete! We are so happy with how the screen turned out! We back on to a green space and many people walking by have asked about the screens. They thought our deck guys made them! Expect to perhaps get more calls from Calgary inquiring on these screens!! Enjoy the pics and thanks again to Core Glow for all your assistance!
We love the outcome of our new Barking Lot! We did the Core path under the seating area too, then put our floor matting product over the top.
All we have left to do is install the Splash Pad and the deck seating around the blue shed. Then kick back and let our pups have fun!
Love your product!
I used the CORE product to install a 1250’ driveway. Their support and advice were very helpful as we worked on the design of my project. The installation was simple and straightforward , even the radius went without issue. I used a redimix truck to deliver the stone - the core product handled the weight of the mixer with no issue. After six months the product has continued to perform as promised -drains well and requires very little stone raking.
Great product and very helpful customer service. I needed to contact the company concerning the size of the grids and they provided very useful information
We installed your gravel and grass panels last year. We drive our RV in and out all year, including winter to ski. The lawn holds up perfectly, with no a hint of rutting on the grass or gravel portions.
Amazing product and super friendly company. These grids made my walkway and patio dreams come true! I love that it's a very stable surface that's permeable and environmentally sound. No puddles form when it rains, which is amazing. I couldn't be happier!
We were so happy to install this on our own and save money. The most work was the base-prep, the system install and gravel infill was very easy. It went much faster to lay down than expected and only took a day and half to lay down our 1800 sq.ft. of grilds and fill with gravel.
Also, the core gravel has been so effective and stable that the dog is suprised when someone is at the door (there is no gravel noise).
I wanted to let you guys know that your level of customer service is something not typically encountered these days. It’s refreshing! And, even for a small order such as mine.
I own a fishing tackle company and build custom made fishing gear in the Galveston TX area I searched for OVER 3 1/2 years for a Glow Bead that actually GLOWED! I purchased different glow beads from all over the world only to be disappointed when they arrived. The ad's always showed one thing but they never seem to work. I found Core Glow and placed an order and I was thrilled when the product arrived because these BEADS really GLOW!

We used this product for a backyard sitting area. The product was easy to use even though we added the challenge of a winding path. Cutting and fitting was relatively easy and the end product was awesome.
Your screens worked perfectly, and we are both very proud of the finished result here. The object was to provide privacy between our laneway home and the main house. A great DIY project that turned out perfectly thanks to these panels.
My recieved my order last week. I just started laying them out, and it’s going very easily. I love your product and place an additional order soon.
Our grass project went very well and our crew liked working with the product. I was surprised with how quickly they were able to lay the material.
Could not believe how easy it was to install. Easy to create curves and it followed the curves and contours of the land with no problem. My wife was shocked at how quickly I got the job done.
Happy to recommend this product to anyone who wants a very lovely, stable pathway with minimal maintenance.
I just wanted to take a minute and let you know what a pleasure it was to deal with you guys. The core arrived the next day once it had shipped. The panels came on a pallet and was well protected. When it came to installation, Wow! How simple and fast! Will recommend this product to everyone! Now to just wait for the grass to grow!
Thank you for all the wonderful information that you provided while I was at your store. The product 50-30 was perfect for our pea gravel. The path turned out just perfect and I love how stable the gravel is on the slope. It was easy to install and a great compliment to our yard. I would use it again.
My entire experience with Core Gravel was an overall pleasure. I had a fairly technical application with undulating terrain and serious drainage issues. Caroline (owner) showed great patience in answering my questions while I worked out the sometimes challenging procedures of getting the mats to mold to the terrain. My driveway now exceeds all preconceived expectations!
The installation of Core-Gravel 38-18 was a success and the sloped landscape/xeriscape area looks amazing! We installed in our clients front yard, the area is for curb appeal (no foot or vehicle traffic). The slope was over 20 degrees and the grids worked perfectly to stablize and support the gravel. We cut pieces of the grid out, to add cactus and other no maintenance plantings. The area is now beautiful and requires no watering and maintenance.
I’m so impressed with how easy the product is to install. It was Super Easy, Super Fast! I didn’t even need a skill saw, just scissors! I will send photos of the project once the rest of the landscaping is complete.
We love our new path. The staff at CORE Landscape were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We will be back for more core path to make a patio area beside our horse shoe pits. And what a great product to buy locally in the Comox valley.
Rob and Jodi Jackson, Merville.
We received the package and installed the Core Gravel panels. We are extremely satisfied with the product and the ease of installation.
Ours is a retrofit situation. We already had pea gravel installed in the paths of our garden, but found like many others, that it is awkward to walk on loose pea gravel and we were looking for a solution. In the installation, where possible, we cleared the pea gravel down to the original base to give the panels a flat as possible installation., but there were many spots that the pea gravel was 2-3 inches deep and in this case we levelled the gravel to a depth of 1" and laid the panels on the P-Gravel, this worked as well!
I'd like to thank you for the excellent customer service and superior products. Your Glow in the Dark beads are the lifeline of my tiny new business. Thank you and God Bless!

I am so glad I put my project on hold to find just the right product! CORE Gravel is not only easy to install, it also saved me time, money, and a lot of back breaking work. This was a perfect solution for my needs as it allows water to flow freely through, keeping the patio surface clean and dry, and the pebble in place. CORE Gravel truly is a no fuss, no muss, zero maintenance product. I have no doubt my patio surface will look just as great years from now as it did the day I installed it! Thank you for your top-notch customer service and superior product.
I have completed installation of the Core gravel stabilizers. It is amazing how stable and secure the area is. It will work great with our ShelterLogic canopy planned to store a treasured sports car.
I am glad I was able to discover the product as it meets my requirements very well. Trust the pictures will demonstrate another valid use for the eco friendly products.
This is Massimo Gallizzi from Chambly Québec. We did my drive-way in July and I forgot to send you a feedback with some pictures.
It took 2 days to do the project and on the 3rd day it didn’t look like a construction site or that work had took place.
We're very happy with the result and we got multiple compliments.
Ciao and thank you again!
The Core gravel panels (for our driveway) were very easy for us to install. We used coloured gravel, and in the 6 months that we have been parking and walking on it daily there has been no movement or stone loss at all! We are very happy with it. We are waiting for the spring to be able to install the Core grass panels. I tell everyone who asks about our driveway about Core Driveway and send them to your website.
Building an English glorified Crofter’s Cottage we knew we wanted the look of a gravel drive but we were concerned about the challenges one brings and your product eliminates them all!
The CORE Grass system has worked great for our small project. The space between our pie lot driveway and our neighbours was causing the grass to be driven over essentially turning it to mud. Since installing the core system the grass between the two driveways has been able grow and keep its integrity even if a vehicle drives over it. I'm very pleased with the result.
Thank you for your assistance.

Attached are a couple of photos of our privacy screen incorporating your panels. It is part of a newly “renovated” area of our front yard, freed up by the removal of an large old spruce tree.
We’ve had a lot of positive comments about the panels – they’re really something, and fit in quite well with our collection of west coast art indoors and several other themed pieces in our back yard.
The CORE Gravel has been installed and we are pleased with the product and the way it solved a major problem here on the dunes of Cape Cod Bay. Sandwich, like most towns will no longer approve asphalt or concrete driveways. The Conservation Commission would only approve crushed sea shells and on a steep dune, that would have caused a major problem.
We used the core system for a gravel patio and pathway area. It was easy to work with and gave a fantastic result. So much so I decided to use it for a second area. The staff are also extremely helpful and friendly. It was a pleasure to do business with them. Highly recommended!
Terrific product. The pieces by Noel Brown add an element to the back yard design that truly takes it from the inside out, outside in lifestyle. Jackie is wonderful, can't say enough about CORE Landscape products and great customer service!
The CORE gravel 65-30 surface works great for us and was easy to install. I decided to do the install myself, as no contractor was available in our area (typical for our area). My novice install of the CORE gravel system went very well. Our driveway has a slope in the area between the driveway and rock wall. The trimming of the grid was easily done with a jigsaw. The gravel is great to walk on and softens the look of the concrete driveway. This system now allows us to walk safely up and down the driveway when it gets icy or snowy.
We recently installed your 50-30 foundation around our garden beds. I love them and my wife does too. They stabilized our garden paths perfectly, and we will be buying some additional pieces for our other landscape areas.
We just received our 3 Modinex Panama Privacy Screens. They were really well packaged, look awesome, and we love the colour. The on-line pictures don’t do them justice.
Thank you for the great customer service. We love your product (Commercial Grade Glow Marble), they are installed in a parking area off our driveway. Here are a few pics of our current project, the area is looking great! We will be placing another order this evening!
Thanks so much for your recent help with my order, I am really impressed with the way you and your company helped getting everything taken care of.
We are very happy with the way it turned out
Our new CORE Gravel path is a perfect solution for a sloped walkway. Footing is now more secure, the path looks great - and it's a permeable surface, a very important factor for us. The Rocket-edging provides an attractive, functional finish. The CORE Gravel staff we dealt with were all very knowledgeable about the product, its applications and installation.
I actually had fun working with the grid, they went together real nice, and the gravel sits in real nice as well. The driveway looks and functions just as I anticipated “AWESOME”. Thank you for the Great Service. I’ll be ordering more in the Spring
We are so happy with the look and design of our storage area, using your gravel grids. We needed a firm base outside for storage, that we could drive a forklift on. The foundations are barely noticeable once filled, which was the look we were going for. It’s working very well and we plan to expand the area next Spring.
We completed our core gravel path as well as the patio block path. We can now move our golf cart across the beach and not have to worry as much about erosion. What used to be very soft sand, is now very firm.
