6. Decomposed Granite Path ( aka DG )
Compacted decomposed granite (basically super fine gravel, looks and feels like fine sand with smaller than ¼” particles) is really comfortable to walk on. It’s used a lot in Mediterranean and Southwestern style gardens.
7. River Rock Garden Path
Small (1″+- ) river rocks are very cost effective, although I would recommend checking out #9.
8. Slate Chips Path
Love the deep blue color of the slate!
9. Pebbles with Stepping Stones
Such a poetic design: the pebbles here are a metaphor for streams and rivers, and the little wooden bridge is stunning.
10. Pavers and Gravel Garden Path
The stone (or concrete) stepping stones add visual interest and function as borders for the gravel and planting pockets!
11. Grassy Garden Path
Not suitable for heavy traffic such as loaded wheel barrels, very suitable for waltzing through the garden.
12, 13, 14, & 15. Variations of stepping stones with grass, ground-covers, or wood mulch.
16, 17, & 18. Variations of brick or cobblestone garden path
One of my favorite garden path designs is clay bricks set in sand. It’s used a lot in those gorgeous English gardens, and the nostalgic vibe is irresistible.
