Paths provide interest and intrigue to a garden space. Using stones or pavers you can create an atmosphere and your own story as you move through the garden. Helping to keep people from walking on the grass they can save in maintenance too.
If you have the budget to add some moss or soft ground cover in between the stones even better.
Types of Garden Paths
There are many types of pathways, including short, long, narrow, straight, and curved.
Chipped slate, gravel, and wood chips are often used as loose surface materials, whereas slabs, tiles, bricks, pavers, decking boards, and natural stone provide a solid, smooth walking surface.
What to use instead of Pavers?
- In addition to allowing better drainage than solid paving stones, it is one of the least expensive paver alternatives.
- Poured concrete provides a continuous pathway, but it can be difficult to remove if you change your mind.
Can I lay paving on soil?
Paving slabs can be laid on soil, but it is not generally recommended. In order to install pavers permanently, you must excavate, level, and compact the ground
