Excellent garden path landscaping design ideas include:
- Gravel and Stone Combinations – This combination includes staggered stones and decorative stone chips, while stone edging helps to keep the gravel securely in place.
- Entry – Elegant entries are the latest landscaping trend. Consider including freeform slabs that create stunning rustic pathways. Line these paths with bark, perennials and colorful groundcovers, which results in the ultimate first impression for curbside appeal.
- Curving Walkways – Instead of adding straight lines, landscaping designs are leaning towards meandering, curving pathways. These add depth while lending an instant rustic look to any landscape.
- Rest Stops – Instead of a yard that just seems to “go, go, go,” consider adding paths that incorporate built-in benches. This lends a park vibe to any backyard and offers special, secluded places for homeowners and visitors to enjoy nature while collecting their thoughts or enjoying an early morning cup of coffee.
- Flow – A yard that has a flow that not only accommodates, but also accentuates a home’s architectural style, gives a feeling of cohesive design.
- Stepping Stones – Instead of adding solid stone pathways, consider adding lily pad plopping stepping-stones. These create instant visual interest and when lined with layered plants, give a finished, sophisticated vibe to any landscape design.
- Terra Cotta – Homeowners can easily combine a variety of stone types to create a casual look. Consider incorporating and blending limestone and concrete to add dimension and texture.
- Bluestone – For homeowners that want a modern park vibe, consider bluestone flagging, which will help promote a linear path with strong lines. This looks especially striking when paired with stone and log archways.
- Patterns – By incorporating a variety of patterns and textures, such as bricks surrounding bluestone pavers, a focal point can instantly be achieved. Additionally, if the pavers are turned at a diagonal angle, it will make them appear larger.
- Strolling Walkways – In larger yards or on acreage, adding strolling walkways can help create paths that highlight the natural beauty of the property.
- Repurposed – Repurposed supplies are exceptionally popular with landscape design trends. Antique bricks that focus on stronger geometric designs are all the rage this season.
- Matching – If a house has flagstone incorporated into the exterior, consider adding it to walkways, to add a matching vibe that highlights the beauty of this natural stone.
- Shredded Hardwood – This type of mulch offers a natural look for any yard and lasts from one to three years. Additionally, it looks stunning in woodland-type settings.
