Most of the time, the paths that we get in the middle of the houses' patios, gardens, and surroundings usually have a functional but, above all, very aesthetic purpose in the landscape. 

Usually, these paths serve as a walkway to take your guests to certain places that are key in the garden, such as a water fountain, barbecue, a swimming pool, or some other seating area that is on the patio. 

Therefore you can ask yourself questions such as what details are missing from your garden, how you can walk in the garden and not step on the grass, or how you prevent your heel from digging into the ground. 

Today we want to show you some options so you can take a walk or trail, depending on your style and the budget you have available for your new project. Remember that the first thing you need to start is desire and a lot of imagination. Let's check it! 

The excellent distribution of space when starting any project is essential since the garden's design will depend on it. In addition to providing a natural touch to this area, it will also enhance the aesthetics of the place. Therefore the inclusion of paths helps to delimit and shape the space. 

The walkway is made in a very modern and minimalist style; in this case, it could be made of wood or terracotta; one of the main characteristics is the geometric and harmonic shape that the location of each tile has. The separation of the pieces that are part of the path must be located at the same distance. Simple is sometimes synonymous with good taste. 

  • A country road 

To make a slightly more rustic but modern walkway, you can choose to use different types of stones; these can be placed in different sizes but always in the same sense and shape a country house's paths. These walkways are ideal for connecting the main house with the tiny houses that some homes place in the gardens; this usually adds mystery and many styles to the green areas. The excellent choice of the vegetation that will make a living near the road is essential since if bushes with large roots are chosen at the time of their growth. They can lift the slabs that were placed, which will be a significant headache in the future since the road will be uneven. 

  • Use big stones 

An excellent option to make a path without spending a lot of money is usually natural stones; this will give you a very versatile decoration. This decoration is very suitable to implement in any environment; remember that its combination also tends to make a good contrast with other materials. It is usually a very successful idea since granite is a hard material and resistant to climate change. In the separation lines between one tile and another, the lawn can be sown, giving you a much greener and more even space. 

  • Wooden trails 

Wood is one of the most popular materials in terms of decoration; this time, as shown in the image, the combination of wood and fine stone is usually an excellent choice to decorate a walkway. You can place small logs to decorate or slabs of large rocks at the edge of the road; as shown in the photo, you must remember that you cannot place stones in excess, as this can cause an unevenness in the path. You must remember that a natural touch when walking is to choose the vegetation present in your garden to highlight every detail of the place, and people can enjoy the landscape. 

  • Cobblestones to power 

Possibly the garden and the parking lot of the house communicate with each other. It is necessary to carry out a path or walkway; a very successful option is usually cobblestones. These issues after their placement can be placed in a mixture that prevents the absorption of water and other liquids (waterproofing), which will facilitate their preservation and duration. These paving stones are usually obtained in different colors and models, which will provide a better appearance to the road. Also, this type of material is usually much cheaper and durable. Remember that the opening between each paver must be filled with sand.
