Garden pathways and alleys are usually organised to get you from one point to another in the easiest possible way. In this post we will show you how pathways can be more than just practical; with a little planning and effort, they can completely turn around the aesthetic value of a garden or path. If you intend to build your own pathway, our first advice is that you should forget about the rules and let creativity lead the way. From giant rocks to bricks and wood planks, you choose any material you like to make an original garden walkway. You will find plenty of inspiration: whether you enjoy a mosaic-tiled design or a simple stone and grass mix, there are quite a few pattern ideas to get you started. Keep in mind that the design of the pathway can emphasise the beauty and fresh colours of the flowers in your garden or backyard.
