Exterior home design goes far beyond your four walls. If you’re looking to spruce up your yard space– front, back, or otherwise– we have some walkway ideas. A paved walkway is a beautiful and versatile choice. Plus, it’s a little less grass to mow! Other than your classic front walk, there are many different places where a path can be a great extra touch. Here are four ways to incorporate a walkway into your yard.
Among the Gardens
Do you dream of the picturesque garden spaces surrounding 20th century mansions or found within the glossy pages of a magazine? Adding a lovely garden path might just get you one step closer to that reality. Add a winding trail of smooth stones leading to your pond’s edge or a wide boulevard complete with steps ascending through rows of brightly colored flora. The possibilities are endless.
Around the Pool
While we love a good pool deck, if your backyard escape is in-ground, a paved surface is probably the better way to go. Bland slabs of concrete aren’t your only option! Choose from a variety of affordable custom stone pavers to match your pool area’s aesthetic. Need a sturdy but attractive new fence while you’re at it? We can help with that, too!
Connecting to the Patio
Paved walkways and patios go hand-in-hand– especially if your home has a fire pit. Connect the different areas of your yard with coordinating stone pavers so you never have to tramp through the mud again. Got a pool or garden? Even better! Taking a stroll around your own property has never been so enjoyable.
By the Shed
Whether your shed is for bikes, gardening tools, the lawnmower or all three, paving the area around the doors and/or adding a path to its entrance creates a balanced appearance of symmetry with the rest of your yard. A shed doesn’t have to be an eyesore– or the place covered in cobwebs you’re afraid to enter at night! Add some pavers to coordinate your landscaping design and make it easier to retrieve whatever you need from storage.
The bottom line with these walkway ideas? They’re versatile, attractive, useful, and can tie your landscaping design together the more touches you add throughout your property. And as a bonus, surrounding areas that often get wet– such as gardens or pools– with a hard surface will cut down on the amount of mud in your yard. What kind of walkway ideas would you consider?
