Paths and walkways are important elements of garden design and also meet a practical purpose. Several types of flooring, artwork and design options are suitable for the path construction. However, there are no fixed rules about how you have to plan a path – only the size of the outdoor space and the personal preferences are to be observed.
Ideas for garden paths design
In the garden design a paving stone for the path is not always a must. Even the paving stones are available in different shapes, sizes and colors and can be applied differently, making it easy to walk on it. Gravel paving, stone paving and stepping stones are more suitable for high traffic routes. To lay stepping stones is very easy and requires no effort. The step slabs made of concrete are placed for example at a distance of about 60 cm. Clay brick for example, are also very durable and hard.
