With a beautifully manicured backyard or garden, you don’t want visitors trampling on certain areas of it. Use pathways and walkways to protect those areas. No one wants to accidentally tread on a beautiful, but delicate part of their garden and accidentally kill it. For those gardeners with large, ornate gardens, a large pathway is a perfect place to put a bench, chairs, or even a hammock to sit and enjoy the fruits of your labour. These pathways can be wide or narrow, winding or straight, and can be made out of many different kinds of materials. The most popular materials tend to be concrete or stone, but you may also see vinyl or synthetic wood.
