Whether the walkway goes straight to the front door or winds through a back garden, it is one of the most important components of any landscaping design. A walkway shouldn’t just look good; it should also function well. For proper drainage and to prevent trip hazards, a walkway needs to be level, stable, and structurally sound.
If you hire an expert to design and install the path, there are many options available in terms of materials and patterns, and costs can differ significantly. If money is tighter than you can imagine, there are lots of projects for do-it-yourselfers of all skill levels that use inexpensive—or even free—materials. Take a look at these adorable concepts for motivation and practical how-to advice, then start building a walkway that will impress!
