Considerations when adding a path

Things to consider

Where will it run?

Paths are there for a practical purpose. As well as being a nice feature of a garden, they serve to allow yourself, and visitors to your garden, to get to area without having to get your feet muddy or wet.


Do you want the path to go directly from point A to point B? Or would it look much better to have the path wind around another part of the garden? Quite often straight paths are a bit boring but adding a few bends to a path can really make it an interesting feature. Obviously, this can often cost more due to the extra materials.

There are many different materials that we can make a path from. Whether it’s wood chips, decorative stones, pebbles, slabs. And within each of those materials there are literally hundreds of different styles. Different sizes, textures, shapes and colours to choose from.


You need to consider what goes well with your current garden (or the garden you are planning). Do you think coloured stones would harmonise with your flowers or your garden furniture? These kinds of considerations rae what we can help you with.
