Consider Using Gravel and Stone Pavers to Create a Unique Path Style!
Having a walkway or path meandering through your carefully landscaped garden or leading up to your front door from the street is an excellent way to add a personal and unique touch to your home. Even more so if it is made of stone pavers set into gravel, which is one of the most popular walkway styles given their natural look, permeability, and design versatility.
Because there is a broad range of materials available, the opportunities for different combinations are vast and can adapt well to any garden style. Take a look at the different options that you can use for your stone and gravel walkway:
Cut stone adapts well to any garden type. With the variety of hues and stone materials available, you have a wide range of options to combine colors and textures for your path.
Irregularly shaped flagstones fitted together can add texture to your landscape. They may require more time to align the slabs together, but the result is fantastic. Flagstones look especially good in Mediterranean, ranch, or desert style gardens.
Gravel and Pebbles
When it comes to selecting gravel or pebbles for your walkway, choose a type that complements your pavers, both in color and texture. For example, if your pavers are of a pale color, the gravel can be darker to create contrast and enhance the way the pavers look.
There are different gravel types for you to consider:
- Gravel: it can come from various types of rock and in varied sizes, so the cost will vary depending on that. Decomposed granite has the smallest particle sizes, while other gravels can be over an inch wide.
- Pea gravel: a very popular and attractive type, and it has a satisfying crunch underfoot. It can also be used for play areas, structural drainage, rock gardens, and dog runs.
- Beach Pebbles and Polished River Rocks: they are larger small rocks that provide contrast and a tactile quality between the pavers. Because of their larger size and weight than the smaller gravel particles, they will stay put in your walkway.
