Useful Garden Walkway
A garden walkway lead from one area of the garden towards a destination, often another section of the garden containing a particular sculpture, specimen or other focal point. A garden walkway can also give the garden landscape some structure along with delineation. There are several different types of garden walkways. One of the most common kinds of garden walkways involves using bricks, stones, or other hard materials to pave a path. Bricks that are of a regular rectangular or square size can be placed edge to edge and finished neatly by a variety of techniques. Some stones that are not square are designed to fit together, which can also be a desirable look. The installation of these different materials may take professional help, but it is possible to create these types of garden walkways without a professional. Any item that is flat on one side and strong enough to hold up to constant use can be turned into a type of walkway. Usually, people refer to this type of walkway as stepping stones. It is not, however, necessary to use stones.
Small, rounded items can be set in concrete in order to create a textured garden walkway, or other items can be set in concrete in patterns to make a mosaic. Concrete can also be poured without decoration as a walkway. Other materials that harden after being poured may also be used, but concrete is considered particularly durable and useful for garden walkways. Sometimes, loose material is used to create a walkway by raising a border around the edges of the walkway and filling the walking area with gravel, sand, or other materials.
