I wouldn’t because it’s pretty dusty. Better used outside in my opinion.

Yes, I think they could be used for that purpose but I would prefer a large and less costly stone. I imagine using these for that purpose would get quite expensive.

The color is more green than gray - it is not black. The gravel size is 1/2" - 1" not 3/16 - I will be returning this - glad I bought only 1 bag to see it, before I purchased the total amount needed for the job.
by Laura
Way bigger than 3/16
Very disappointed with this product. I was looking for small rock - like the 3/16 promised. Look at the photo. And, as others have said - it's nowhere near 'black', either. Combined with the lousy 'pick up in store' service, this is a real disappointment.

Great for fish tanks
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I reveived black washed gravel for free to try for free for my honest review. And honestly it's just fish tank gravel or you can also use it for DIY projects crafts terrariums and Zen gardens.

Perfect for the job. I used the gravel to make a level bed for three terra cotta pots for small shrubs. The pots are each 20” x 8” resting on uneven surface. The gravel filled in the low spots providing level support for the planters.
