Preventing Mud Under Outdoor Faucet

I got tired of the constant mud puddle under our faucet. Between watering our yard and maintaining our ducks' pen, we have the water on a lot. So my husband created this awesome little gravel pad under the faucet. It is perfect for preventing the mud puddles. It is also a great place to rinse off boots.


My husband built a frame using 4x4 pieces of wood. Then we lined the area with weed cloth, put the frame in place, and filled it with gravel. We finished by tamping it and adding a little more gravel.

I did the same thing as you did except I bought a few bags of the pretty colored glass 'rocks' from the Dollar Tree and spread them out inside the picture frame. It works great and looks pretty!
