Whether they are made of natural stone, classic brick, or concrete pavers – walkways in your yard should be easy to travel. After all, it's all about the journey more than the destination.
Landscape walkways design considerations
Width. A landscape walkway should be wide enough for two people to walk side-by-side. Four feet is the minimum for a front entry walkway but 5 feet is better. Secondary walkways can be narrower depending on where they are in the yard.
Shape. Small yards benefit from straight walkways. Curved sidewalks add interest but are more informal. Don’t overdo curves. That will take away from the overall look. So, consider the style of the home. Do you need to emphasize the front entry? Then perhaps a straight walkway is best. Putting a walkway through a large garden? A meandering walkway in your landscape could feel just right.
Materials. When deciding on walkway materials, take your cue from the home. Red brick? Pavers close in color will make it seem as if the walkway had always been there. No matter the look of the existing home, our team can identify what materials would work best in order to seamlessly blend the new hardscape, all while keeping budget top of mind.
