When it comes to your landscape, there’s a lot you can do to transform the space from drab to fab. One way to do this is to have a beautiful walkway installed. Whether it’s a walkway from your driveway to your front door or a walkway from your back deck to your patio or gardens, walkways can significantly enhance your landscape design.
For your walkway, you have an assortment of choices in materials that can be used. One type is concrete. Though concrete is often associated with the gray color found in more utilitarian walkways, different concrete molds can be used to create concrete pathways using a variety of patterns and colors.
Concrete is a great material since it can be slip-resistance and easily cleaned. You can also design concrete walkways without any cracks, so you won’t need to worry about anyone slipping and falling on your property.
Another material for you to consider for your walkway design is natural stone. The types of stone that are often used for outdoor walkways are granite, limestone, marble, slate, flagstone and travertine. This material provides a natural, durable and aesthetically appealing design for your walkway.
Brick is another material that you can use. Like stone, brick can also give a classic, glamorous look to your walkway. It is also durable and can be cleaned easily.
Once you have chosen the material, you can determine how the walkway will look. You may want a straight, practical path that leads your guests directly to your home. Perhaps you’d rather have a path that meanders, letting visitors admire the grounds as they leisurely stroll around your gardens. For those who want to make an artistic statement, you can have a walkway that zigzags to your destination. Regardless of your taste, your personality or what you desire to tell visitors, the perfect walkway design for you does exist.
