How Stones Add Special Glam to Your Pathways and Landscape

First impressions are so important, even when it comes to pathways and driveways leading to your home. Within seconds opinions will be formed by the curb appeal it presents. Why not utilize these simple tips to make your landscape ultra glam.


1. Gravel Stepped Path

Paths like the one pictured above evokes visual interest while maintaining its practical purpose. It leads to a sloped garden landscape by creating a gavel-stepped walkway that combines simplicity and style at the same time. Pea gravel and new or salvaged wood beams are all that is needed to create one like this. Steps can be created or the level can be graded and filled in with gravel to create a wondrous pathway.



2. Classic Brick

Using bricks as pavers is an easy path solution, one that looks great in any garden. Creating a level surface that lines with a mesh barrier fabric for weed control is a purposeful implementation. Adding a shallow level of crushed gravel infused with a brick arrangement design is very eye-pleasing. Filling in the joints with silica or basalt sand, or small-sized pea gravel if larger openings is also a trendy idea.



3. Rustic Natural Stone

Create a more rustic garden walkway by combining different shapes and colors of flagstone into a richly patterned mosaic. This approach is the same approach a person would use trying to figure out a geometric puzzle; choose stones for fit and coloration.  This artistic pattern can be used to make a simple landscape ornate, or it can glam up an already ornate pathway. The rustic stone can be placed strategically to fit in small, windy places and around shrubbery for a well-organized pathway to your front door.
