Can this pathway be used in the north, where we have frost?

Yes, you can use decomposed granite in cold climates because it is basically just crushed rock. It will expand and contract with the temperature just fine. The rock pathway is fine as well.

What might be the approximate cost of something like this for a 50' x 30' backyard in Albuquerque, NM?

This is a really unique xeriscape. I like the extreme colors and minimalistic style. The plants become individual works of art. The path suggests the space could be used like a gallery or a meditation space.
