Bartlett IL Concrete Construction | Improve Any Yard With These Simple Garden Paths & Walkways

Ask anyone who’s invested time and money into renovating their yard, and they will tell you how much of a slippery slope even the “simplest” of renovations can be. Whether it’s time, labor, finances, or a combination of the three, transforming your yard can be an endeavor. Luckily, there are simplified ways to transform your outside space that don’t sacrifice quality.

Before you get started on your next DIY project, keep these simplified garden walkway tips in mind. 

Stepping Stones

One of the quickest options for a DIY walkway is to use stepping stones. Laying large pieces of stone or concrete in a pattern of your choosing can easily be completed in an afternoon without the need for significant future maintenance. Before you get started, make sure to measure the distance of the path to figure out how many stones will be necessary. Stepping stones can also be placed directly onto your grass or sod. 


Building a walkway is a project that offers many creative options throughout the building process. Start by determining what you’d like your border to be made of: concrete, brick, stone, and metal are common materials but many other options exist for your choosing. Let your creativity flow while you create your path’s design with the material of your choosing.

Combine Different Options

The creative options that make up building a garden path are limitless. A great example would be to use a combination of concrete stepping stones with a rock border and mulch or gravel to fill in the areas between the steps. Natural grass can be used as a filler for a more natural-looking “planted path.” There’s no right or wrong combination; just do what works for you!

A simple yard renovation such as a garden path should remain just that: simple. Combined with a creative mind, it can complement any backyard or garden in as little as a few hours. Think outside of the box to make the landscaping project your own. If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to help. Contact G-CAT Construction today.
