Enjoy this pathway. It's easy to walk on and pretty too!
The gravel path was created along my normal route so no one had to retrain me. I love that the slate nuggets don't get stuck between my toes and Mom's really happy now that I don't drag mud into the house! ... Bailey the dog. Photo by Danna Cain
I have only had one project where coyotes where a major concern and threat for clients 2 small dogs. Research showed that coyotes usually dig rather than jump over fence. So, at that site, 2' of wire fencing was buried at the base of their privacy fence. Large metal hooks were used to hold it down. Since
the wire fencing was buried it wasn't unsightly. The client reports that she has not had any issues with coyotes entering the property, however, the 2 dogs are not left outside overnight, so possibly there isn't sufficient "prey" for the coyotes to want to try very hard to enter. I've heard of great success

the garden. Can you see this from a child's eye view?
With plant growth over it this would be a great idea for the dog to rest under a cool area. Possibly some type of flowering vine?
Love the idea of using paths and elements of playcourses to make the garden fun
No doubt dogs and kids would love a built in tunnel!
Dog run covered with wistera or other vine
dog tunnel for dog run? next to fence
At the back of the Braai Area. Nice as a veggie garden!
that’s just dog size. It can be your pet’s hiding spot. Even dogs sometimes need to get away from it all.
Is this for the dog or for everyone? Just joking
may fall a bit out of the "simple and budget friendly" range, it looks and feels really cool! I would love to have a tunnel like this in my yard. Oh, I'll take the stone bench as well.

The look of mulch for the dog's pathway
Can you scrabble to create a path from pop level down the bottom
a great choice for a garden and mostly soft on paws, steer clear of cocoa mulch. The smell may be great, but if your dog eats it, it can cause the same bad reactions as chocolate. Many baits for snails, rats and other pests can be fatal. If you must use them, make sure your dog can’t get at them — and
and remember, dogs can be remarkably tenacious when it comes to getting at something you don’t want them to get at.

Dogs feel it’s their job to patrol the perimeters of the yard. Rather than fight this instinct, include a running space

your dog will probably cut the corner rather than make a 90-degree turn.

What kind of gravel did you use for your dog run?
Any problem with the dog injuring his nose or paws by sticking them through 4" grid?
my big concern is the height of the panels. I want them 34-42 inches and all I see with square holes are 4 ft or higher. DM and Avant Garden, what is the height of those you used? thanks a lot!
chicken house turned into dog house with the dog pen

AFTER: New Curving Gravel Path
View of curved gravel path toward the backyard, showing boulder placement and plantings. Curves are anchored with strategically placed 'Winterred' and 'Hogyoku' Japanese maples. Along the path are plantings of Black Mondo Grass, Epimedium, red penstemons, 'Solfatare' crocosmia, and 'Firefly' heucheras
What is the material for the path? Topsoil?
I'm trying to find right material borders around gravel path.
Hi Lisa--The border on this path is 1/8" rolled steel edging. It has to be secured in place, but it does make nice graceful curves and I prefer it because it doesn't rot over time and I think it looks better than the recycled plastic types of bender boards. Hope that helps you!
Thanks for the question. The path material is called 1/4 inch-minus crushed gravel. It's a local gravel made from basalt rock that is crushed, so it packs down well (unlike pea gravel). The pathway was installed with a rolled steel edging to contain the gravel, and a vibrating compactor machine is used on
I have a patio and my dog eats rocks, so this might be just the solution I need.
What is the plant lining the path?
the dogs eat the sticks... oye!
Love the feeling of this pathway. It looks like you've put in a line of metal edging between the path and garden. What type of edging was used and how deep does it go? Thank you.
Thank you so much, Kari. I'm getting ready to make some paths in my
I've seen mixed results with hardener/stabilizer. Recently I was involved in a project here, and learned the hard way that dg paths with stabilizers can still get mushy when wet. Before using a stabilizer or hardener, just ask the manufacturer specifically how their product performs

Great way to separate garden areas, such as the veggie garden from the rest of the garden.
The small gravel path maybe we can do as a path between house.
Love this idea for the entrance into the garden
3. Put children on the right path. Naturalized playscapes with areas where children can branch out and explore are key to imaginative play. Not only are multiple centers for play a great idea, but fun pathways to get there are as well. Multicolored or oddly shaped pavers can be fun for kids to hope
