A home's front walkway should make a good first impression and create a clear path to the door. This contemporary home's unique cement path — made up of a series of circular steps — provides easy access to both the front door and the garage.
A brick walkway adds timeless appeal to a landscape. This path disappears around a curve, creating a bit of mystery and adding sense of destination to the garden.
Frequently used paths should be made of a strong material that can stand up to heavy foot traffic. In this unique garden designed by Pamela Berstler, curved concrete pathways provide a durable and attractive trail to a quiet seating area.
Casual Garden Path
Paths that receive light traffic can be made of less heavy-duty materials, such as an informal series of field stones. This beautiful stone path, interspersed with Irish moss, rambles between large boulders and soft perennials.
A herringbone pathway leads to multiple destinations in this landscape, including a dining area, a garden table and lush plantings. The wide paths can accommodate two people walking side by side. Design by Jamie Durie
