3. Update Your Garden WalkwaysElevate the design of your garden or front walkway by replacing simple dirt and mulch paths with those made of pavers, such as flagstone, cut stone or concrete, set into gravel. The new walkways will help keep mud down, aid in drainage and give your garden a finished look.Need a permit? In general, the need for a permit depends on whether you’re installing a new pathway or replacing an old one, and on the size of the proposed design. Check with your local building department for permitting requirements. DIY or hire a pro? For large-scale or complicated designs, hire a contractor. You can tackle a simple flagstone or cut stone pathway if you’re experienced using tools such as a tamper and a level, and comfortable with installing pathway edging and leveling pavers.Range of cost: Cost varies widely depending on materials and the size and design of the pathway. Budget $25 to $50 per square foot for a professionally installed path (including design, materials and labor). If you’re planning on doing the design and installation yourself, you can easily pay less than half that per square foot, depending on materials selected.See the full article | Find a landscape contractor
2. Right of way. Instead of merely connecting focal points in this London garden, a straight path of pavers and gravel is the chief feature. It runs like a main artery down the length of the garden, with every other element branching off it directly.
