The gateway to all yards! Pathways are the 4th element to the 7 elements of a landscape.
As with lawns, paths can hold the landscape elements together.
Paths create a flow of walking around and connect your yard. For example, a winding path through your flower garden or up to your front & back door.
The materials used to create a pathway can vary from concrete and mulch to brick and stepping stones. They can be raised (higher maintenance) or level with the lawn (easier maintenance). Choosing your material will give you an overall look of the space from natural to more formal.
