Sprinkle pea gravel in-between stepping stones or make a full path or patio only using pea gravel. The path can end in a little seating area with a bench or be used a a dry creek bed winding through the container garden. For best results use edging to hold the pea-gravel in place and add sand as a base layer.
How to proceed: Start visualizing where the path and/or patio should go and where you want it to end. Then place the edging so it is more or less level with the soil height. Compact the soil within the edging to a depth of about 0.75 inch and carefully wet it. Add 0.5 inch of sand, level and compact it using a piece of wood and again gently wet it with a spray mister. Place the stepping stones keeping a uniform gap between them, then fill in with gravel. If only using gravel and no stones you will need 2 bags of pea-gravel.
