Check with your local landscape/nursery supplier to see what geotextile they recommend. Many of the "landscape fabrics" from Home Depot, Lowes, etc are of a lower grade and will break down over time. This one of those jobs you do not want to do again.

You will need to excavate and remove the topsoil and/or organic materials before you lay down the landscape fabric. When you excavate, watch that you slope the grade away from your home and toward the drains and or street. You may need to install a french drain under the fabric to catch the water and lead it towards the drain/street.

I would expect that you will want 4+ inches of gravel over the fabric depending on the traffic use of the area.

Just installed a winding path in my backyard. Love it. We used the bobcat to remove the grass and rocks and smooth the soil. Laid out the frame. Laid tar paper (from the roofing dept) as a weed barrier. We used M10 from the stone yard rather than pea gravel. It's great.

This is 2" x 4" redwood set on edge and secured with redwood stakes (inserted with the tops below the gravel ) and wood screws. The redwood and stakes can be purchased at a lumber store.

This is called pea gravel, available at a local stone or landscaping materials yard. Unlike solid surfaces, gravel and pavers like this allow water to seep into the soil, rather than run off into the yard or street, which is a good thing! If you're looking for pebbles for a walkway, you may need a layer of small crushed rock underneath to stabilize the smoother pebbles and make them easier to walk on. The larger pavers are usually set into a layer of sand and gravel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 5 Gravel and Stone Types for a Rockin' Landscape
Pea Gravel The basics: Pea gravel is a small, rounded rock that got its name because the rocks are about the size of a pea. In reality pea gravel comes in different sizes — 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch and 5/8 inch are common sizes. It typically comes in a range of tan, brown and white color mixes, but do your homework to learn the cost of each. Use pea gravel for patio areas, pathways and filling in between flat rock, like flagstone.Cost: Pea gravel is sold by the bag for around $3 or by the cubic yard for $33 to $50 and up. Advantages: Most kinds are fairly inexpensive and readily available.Disadvantages: It can be difficult to push a lawn mower or any wheeled equipment over a gravel path, as the wheels tend to sink into the gravel. It can stray out of place if not properly edged.Special considerations: There are several different types of pea gravel, and some are significantly more expensive (rainbow gravel, for example). Be sure you know the difference when you are choosing your gravel to avoid sticker shock upon checkout.Maintenance: Stay on top of weeding so it doesn't become a maintenance issue. Pea gravel can have a tendency to stray out of its area if there's no barrier to keep it in place, and even then, it can shift to cover nearby flagstone. Keep a broom handy to sweep it back into place.
