Walks and Paths
Laying a four foot wide walkway from the parking area to the front door, a stepping-stone path through a bit of woodland is more of a long term commitment to your house and garden than a mulch or gravel path. Think long term, even if you plan on installing one path at a time, it’s a good idea to think in light of future paving projects that will link all garden areas and connect the landscape to the house. Assess the style, materials, dimensions, and proportions of your home when considering walkway and pathway materials. No matter what the style of your home also consider your own style. If you are more of a casual person your stonework should reflect your style. Although every material can be removed, it can be costly. Framing permanence is the first consideration when choosing walkway materials.
