We only use about 1/2" of gravel on paths, patios or steps as more than that tends to give the feeling of walking uphill on sand

I designed something like this for a project last year and the cost ended up being the same as using integral colored concrete. So we went with colored concrete step/ walkway, because the homeowner wanted low maintenance. I love this look. Maybe for my next project :)

The timbers (6x8) and gravel are much lower in cost than concrete steps. They do have limited lifespan though and my preference now is to have cast concrete beams instead of the wood, but it is more expensive.

6. Plant a native meadow. If you have a larger outdoor space to contend with, you may not want to cover it all in gravel or stone. Think instead about creating a low-maintenance “meadow” of native plants that requires little water or upkeep. A local landscaping pro or a staffer at a good garden center should be able to guide you in choosing plants that will do well in your area. This is also a good option for sloped yards, where hardscaping would be more difficult.Find plants native to U.S. regions

Create a secret-garden feel with climbing plants. Soften the edges of a mostly hardscaped yard with climbing vines and flowers. This works especially well in small urban gardens, as the climbing plants provide greenery and privacy, and make the yard seem more spacious.
