Walkways are a key part of almost any landscape.
Garden paths are useful in that they help you avoid stepping on plants when working in the garden, as well as creating a more coherent landscape theme. Garden paths can also make a garden look more professional and can provide an accent to certain plants along the garden paths if done correctly.
”So many different types of garden paths exist, that it can be overwhelming to decide which types of garden paths are right for your yard. Garden paths come in all shapes and sizes.”
A path in a lawn can become a feature. Where constant use is likely to wear bare patches in a lawn, an inexpensive solution is to set stepping stones into the ground at regular, spaced-out intervals and sow grass seed around the stones. Choose stones that are attractive and practical to walk on.
Paving Slab Garden Paths
Paving slabs is an extensive category with different materials which vary in colours and textures. These range from sandstone to limestone, travertine and slate. Colours include natural shades through to dark greys and even black. Shapes also vary from squares to oblongs, circles and irregular.
With such a diverse range of options you can pick paving slabs to suit any garden design. Natural colours with texture would suit traditional settings whereas smooth square stones in dark colours would be more applicable to contemporary gardens.

Brick Garden Paths
Bricks can be laid in a variety of patterns for a range of effects. A traditional herringbone pattern will suit a cottage garden, while staggered lines can be used to great effect in a more modern setting.

Gravel Garden Pathways
A gravel pathway is one of the quickest and easiest to create, and there are a wide variety of stone chipping’s available. Don’t choose stones that are very small, as they will get picked up by muddy or wet shoes too easily. Beach pebbles, slate chipping’s in a variety of colours, sparkling white chips, and stones in a huge range of colours are available. For a natural looking path through a shady grove you could even use bark chipping.

What Our Customers Say
Abel Landscapes were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. We were given advice by Darren Moss on the best layout for our garden, which included plans for areas we had not even considered. The workforce were so professional and never stopped working for a minute. They cleared up after themselves and left everywhere spick and span. I would thoroughly recommend them.Dianne YoungSee The Project
