Garden Ideas: Must Have Series - Walkways

Another important garden design ‘must have’ are walkways in your landscape.  A beautiful pathway will greatly enhance your home. Here are a two things to consider:

  1. You’ll want the walkway to look inviting as the entrance to your home. Wherever your pathway leads: to your front door; a courtyard garden; a braai area; veggie garden or to the pool, there are many design options for walkways.
  2. When deciding on a walkway for your home there are a number of considerations: the shape, materials, budget and the maintenance thereof.  Think of the pathway as passages that connect outdoor rooms.  Paths should be functional but also create a sense of allure and mystery to your landscape picture.

Gardening around your pathway is loads of fun, use low growing ground covers that hug stepping stones beautifully and raised edges that keep bark and pebbles in place. This little space along your garden path toward your garden bench truly belongs to you because the majority of your garden is devoted to Mother Nature.
