The look of distinction that pavers, stones capes and outdoor structures add to any landscape is undeniable. Hardscapes create a sense of permanence and elegant refinement to any property. When designed with vision and architectural flair, hardscapes create sturdy and effective functionality while aesthetically expanding the architecture of your home into the outdoor environment.
When landscaping a yard, walkways often get overlooked. We concern ourselves with pools, patios, and plant selections, but then we neglect to consider how to connect the different spaces in our yard. By ignoring paths, a garden can become disjointed because of the lack of thought put into the transitions and connections.
Not only do walkways guide people throughout your yard, they can also be used to create a mood or atmosphere. You’ll want to start by determining if you are trying to create a formal or informal feeling. Then you’ll need to make a number of important decisions regarding shape, dimensions and materials, which can range from simple gravel to decorative stamped concrete. Other factors to consider include your budget, the desired traffic flow, the amount of foot traffic your walkway will receive, and safety.
