    Paths create depth and bring structure to your garden, as well as adding a decorative touch depending on what materials you use. Whether it’s a path to your front door, a walkway that meanders around your back garden or a destination path that leads to a particular spot, a path can enhance the look of your garden so pay attention to the style and materials you’re choosing. From bricks to wooden stepping stones, check out these five great ideas to inspire you…

    Walk on the Wild Side
    A traditional, pale, cobble-stone effect pathway like this one looks charming in a country cottage-style garden. Tall, wild flowers overspilling on to the path will surround you with the scents and sounds of nature and give your garden an enchanting feel.

    Back to Nature
    A wooden path is a subtle way of adding a rustic style to your garden. These stepping stones have been surrounded by wood chips to fill in the gaps and add to the organic feel.

    Perfectly Painted
    A pretty paint job adds real character and a touch of fun. Personalise it to blend in with the theme of your garden or perhaps a particular feature, such as a fishpond!

    Follow the Yellow Brick Road
    OK so it’s not yellow but this charming winding red brick path adds a lovely whimsical feel to this country garden. The subtle orange tones create a statement while blending in with the natural colours of the surrounding garden.

    Gravel Garden
    Bright, bold and beautiful, this vibrant walkway is a gorgeous addition to any garden. The use of gravel creates the sensation of being in a country park, admiring the view on the way through! Gravel is also a cheaper alternative for your path, with instant rustic appeal. Plus the sound it makes underfoot is rather satisfying!
