Garden Path Ideas – Clean, Rustic, Inspired, Large Stones and Small

Filling in the cracks of the steps with stones is an easy way to bring a lot of appeal to your garden. The moss creeping into the walkway is a nice touch.
The stacked stone along this garden path looks like a continuation of the walkway. It pulls the small stone retaining wall and path together seamlessly. It all creates a very aesthetically-pleasing view for the eye.
This simple garden path idea uses old wood to create the walkway. Soil and mulch surrounds the path leading you to a grassy area providing a sense of direction.
The spiral patterns in this walkway make it a one-of-a-kind eye catcher. It takes a lot of work, but as you can see, it clearly pays off.
The moss between the stones create a very natural feel, as though it’s been growing that way for decades. The fountain ties everything together beautifully.
A garden path “assembled” with very large stones requiring heavy equipment to install. The stone walkway surrounded by beautiful interesting vegetation makes you want to stop on your way to the front door. A path which makes you feel like you’re home already. Lots of curb appeal!
Here’s what MidWest has to share about…
Dry-laid pavers which are good for Heavy Use
- Pros Looks formal or natural; a good choice for heavy use.
- Cons More expensive than some options; placing pavers on bare soil can cause problems such as poor drainage.
- Tip Construct a solid, well-drained, level base from sand or gravel. Surround your pavers with a formal edge to keep them from shifting.
This is a very creative use of brick as a walkway. It’s inviting, yet casual and brings a lot of color to an otherwise normal garden.
