Most homeowners are so focused on swimming pools, built-in home features like barbecues that they tend to forget about walkways. Walkways are crucial as they are necessary for getting from a point A to B, and also they connect different focal to other points of interest in your yard. There are varieties of material choices available to make your walkway gorgeous.
When determining the type of material to use for your walkway, you need to ask yourself some honest questions first like;
- Will people be using it while walking on sides?
- How often is the walkway likely to be used?
- Do you have kids who are likely to be buzzing bikes and toys or will there be wheeling trash cans over it
After this, now you are ready to go. Some of the best stones for walkway are;
Clay brick pavers
A red brick walkway is elegant and adds a sense of age elegance. The stones have been used for centuries. They are durable and flexible since they are less sensitive to cracking. You can easily pop up an individual brick for repair while leaving the others intact. Lay them in patterns like a basket weave, runner or herringbone, and you will have a walkway of your dreams.
The main benefits of using gravel are that it is affordable and easy to lay. You only need to identify how you want your walkway, put some fabric so as to avoid weed and then pile the gravel. Use small stones as they are easier to walk.
They form a beautiful walkway since every stone has its unique design, color, and shape. However, the stones require maximum maintenance since they can chip when exposed to moisture. Some of them include flagstone which is durable and withstands extreme temperatures.
Interlocking concrete pavers
They are attractive and less expensive than the natural stones. They are modular, and their repair is less complicated since they can be popped out. Due to their interlocking feature, you can easily create curved and decorative walkways with different colors and designs.
