One of the key advantages of css grid over flexbox is that grid came with the grid gap property which is now becoming just gap in future browser implementations grid gap magically does the work of calculating the spaces horizontal and vertical between grid items without having to add padding or margin and fussing around with calc and nth child to figure out how much space is left to divvy up.

Gutters have absolutely nothing to do with css per se.
These gutters are highly reminiscent of the css grid gap property.
One final improvement can be made to our simple grid and it will solve the width problem we just mentioned.
In the example below we have a three column and two row track grid with 20 pixel gaps between column tracks and 20px gaps between row tracks.
