Walkways

If you own a home and have a yard, your outdoor space probably includes some sort of path -- from front sidewalk to front door, around the side of the house, or out to the backyard. You can rely on a basic from-here-to-there walkway, or you can upgrade yours with ideas that are beautiful and practical. The first step is to choose your material -- one that complements your house and landscape design. The options are varied: brick, gravel, cut stone, or flagstone, for example. If brick is your choice, you'll want to find a style and pattern that's a good fit for your home and garden; wander through our gallery of ideas. Shape, texture, and design are factors in every pathway, no matter the material. Look to our galleries for more inspiration on cut stone, flagstone, gravel, mixed materials, and stepping-stones. If you want to install the path yourself, you can get it finished in a weekend or less with our step-by-step guide to a flagstone, gravel, or paver walkway. If you're really into DIY, you might want to take a look at casting your own stone steps; they're pretty and a perfect reflection of a can-do personality.
