What material to choose for garden paths

Before embarking on the construction of garden paths, you need to decide what functions they will perform and what loads they will be subjected to. For the main paths, it is preferable to choose a solid hard surface, so that you can comfortably move along them in any weather. The best option is paving slabs, paving stones, clinker bricks, flagstone. In those places where the parking of the car and its passage is provided, the thickness of the material should not be less than 5-6 cm.

If space allows, paths and platforms can be made combined - this applies to the patio area, the area in front of the wicket or porch.

Footpaths can be made not only their solid, but also of bulk materials. In the second case, you can use chopped wood chips, brick chips, gravel screenings. It should be borne in mind that bulk materials require a certain amount of care - the tracks will have to be periodically leveled, they will have to fill up the material, clean the garbage, fight weeds.

For secondary tracks, which are used extremely rarely, you can apply the step-by-step principle. In this case, islands of large-format paving slabs, limestone or wood saw cuts will appear on the site. If the area is shady and damp, the tree is not recommended, but you can replace it with an artificial stone that simulates wood.
