Create The Perfect Pathway With These Tips | Stone Supply Company

A pathway is a great way to add functionality and character to your landscaping, but it takes some planning and foresight to create the perfect pathway. Let’s take a look at a few tips and guidelines that can help you to plan and install a pathway that will work as it should.

1.  Plan the path: You will need to plan the route of your path before you purchase any of the supplies you will need. Take a look around your existing landscaping and decide what type of path you would enjoy. A straight path? A curvy path? There are no hard and fast rules on which type of path is best. It depends on your existing landscaping and your personal tastes. You should also make a note of any drainage issues–if you have areas where water collects, you should avoid putting a pathway through those spots before dealing with the drainage problems. If you have no choice, than make sure you plan to use materials that will create a raised pathway so you do not have to walk through water on your path every time it rains.

2.  Plan the width: You will not only need to know how long your path will be, but you will also need to know how wide it will be. Pathways are typically wide enough to accomodate at least two people walking next to each other. If you’ll need a path wide enough to ride or push lawn equipment on, be sure to accommodate for those factors.

3.  Plan the materials: There are many different materials that can be used to create a walkway. Stone is one of our favorite products to use because they can not only provide a safe walking surface, but it looks great too. But it really is all about your personal taste and what will look best with your home and existing landscaping.
