Your garden may benefit from a pathway or pathways for a variety of reasons. Paths lend structure to your garden and can create a sense of depth. Connecting different areas of your outside space and enabling you to access them, pathways enhance the aesthetics of your garden while making life both safer and easier.
Drawing the eye around your garden or towards attractive focal points, garden pathways could make all the difference. However, it isn’t always easy to settle upon the right routes for your pathways and you could literally choose the wrong path.
But we won’t lead you up the garden path! We can design and build the perfect pathways for your space using materials that bring texture, colour, interest and definition to each area of your garden and choose a great planting plan to go with your new pathways.
Functional or diverting?
Pathways can be purely practical features of your garden. They could enable you to walk from one area to another without having to negotiate planted areas or they may be designed to afford you access to planted areas for pruning. You could require a path to your shed and one that keeps you on the straight and narrow. Alternatively, you might benefit from a path that leads to and around your pond.
But garden pathways don’t need to be purely practical additions to your outside space as they can also be diverting features of your garden. Using curves, angles, the right materials and crossing pathways, it is possible to balance awkwardly shaped gardens and to create attractive patterns that imbue your outside space with definition and interest.
Why not take the path less travelled and complete your garden with paved features that move things beyond the purely functional? You could benefit from stylish and beautiful pathways that transform the look and feel of your garden.
Advice & Frequently Asked Questions
Which materials can you use?
It is worth exploring a variety of materials before settling on the look and structure of your pathways. We will help you to make great choices that complement your property and lift your garden while providing the longevity you need.
It is important to think about how you will use your path. Will you be merely strolling around your flower beds, or will you be pushing wheelbarrows across your garden? Would your garden benefit from easily draining gravel paths or hard-wearing stone paths? Would you a favour a resin bound path to prevent weed growth? Is your garden formal or informal? What is the feel or the theme of your space?
Could you benefit from lighter paving that reflects sunlight and remains cool or would you prefer darker shades that absorb warmth from the sun? How could contrasting materials, shades and textures lift your garden? Sandstone, limestone, porcelain and cobbles are all potential options. Pathways choices can also be dictated by your patio area.
How do we evolve the perfect garden pathway design?
Naturally, you are looking for beautiful pathways that will help to transform your garden landscaping. But the ideal aesthetics alone won’t deliver the perfect results.
