I love updating my garden whenever possible. Next year, as soon as the ground is workable and the weather is somewhat warm, my husband and I are planning on revitalizing and updating our garden path. We’ve been spending the last two weeks looking at all of the garden paths, and I think we finally settled on a pretty cheat DIY option. If you’re interested in updating your backyard in an easy manner, try one of these easy to create garden paths today.
Garden Paths: Natural
Though these might be a little pricier depending on the materials used, these garden paths are all made from natural materials so they’ll blend right in.
River Rock: Large, flat river rocks can make for a beautiful addition to a garden path. Put gravel down first followed by the river rock stepping stones.
Garden Paths: DIY
Save money and get the garden path of your dreams with these great DIY garden path projects.
Brick-Lined Pathway:Though it might take a few weekends to complete (especially if you have to remove the grass for the pathway) there is something so quaint about this brick-lined garden pathway. As soon as your winding pathway has been dug out and created, line them with bricks. This looks like something from a botanical garden.
Pallets: All you have to do to create a gorgeous garden path is to disassemble a pallet and place it in your backyard so that it creates the shape of a pathway. Here’s a great tutorial if you wanted to create it yourself. I love the idea of using natural elements like wood as a pathway.
Garden Paths: Cheap
For cheap backyard pathways, I recommend using materials that you already have lying around the house or the backyard.
Cedar Walkway: Cedar walkways are super inexpensive to create, and they look super expensive. Use this kit from Amazon.
Wood Slices:Cover tree truck slices with some sealant and then place them strategically around your back yard so that they create an easy-to-follow pathway.
