All About Walkways For Your Yard
It’s wonderful having a yard full of greenery, flowers, and perhaps even a veg patch or two, but an uninterrupted garden space isn’t without its drawbacks. The terrain can be tricky to navigate, and heavy foot traffic can damage your lawn and erode the ground, forming an unattractive pathway of bare spots and uneven surfaces. Walkway installation for your Rocky Hill, CT home can help solve many issues while providing a uniquely aesthetic appeal.
However, a professionally installed walkway might just solve all your problems in one fell swoop. Forming an attractive, non-invasive means of getting around your property, a walkway can help keep your yard in tip-top condition, all while making it safer and more attractive, taking curb appeal to the next level.
What Is A Walkway?
As we’re sure you can gather from the name, a walkway is a path for walking along, an external installation that provides a dedicated route from A to B on your property, whether residential or commercial.
They’re the great connectors of any outdoor space, linking anything you like to, well… anything you like. They can be part of a grand entrance, connecting your driveway to your front door, they can run between your backdoor and a mid-yard seating area or deck, or they can guide you to your pool when you fancy a quick dip.
What Are Walkways For?
Okay, so we’ve covered what walkways are, but you still might be unsure as to their purpose. Is there really a point in connecting two spaces you can already reach without an additional installation? Well, we believe so, yes. Here’s why…
What are the different types of Walkways?
There are hundreds of different types of walkways, which is both a blessing and a curse for you. On the one hand, the possibilities are endless, and on the other, you may well be struck with option paralysis. Thankfully, you can find some inspiration on our Portfolio Page and by mulling over some of the following considerations…
Shape and Direction
A lot of walkways are simple straight lines, but they don’t have to be. Yours can be as sinuous as you please.
The edges of your walkway needn’t be clean-cut, either. They can be zigzagged, wavy, completely irregular… whatever sounds good to you!
You’ll also need to consider the width of your walkway. Do you see yourself walking hand in hand with a partner along it? Do you need extra space to run your wheelie bin out for collection?
Walkways can be made of all kinds of different materials. To name just a few…
Ornate stenciled stone
Interlocking vs Flush-Fit
How do you want the materials to look? Should they interlock in a quirky pattern, or would you prefer something more straightforward and flush-fitted?
Intermittent or Constant
Intermittent, stepping stone walkways are very popular at the minute, and they look fantastic, but you may prefer a path with a constant progression to make the area as safe as possible.
The Pitfalls of DIY Walkways
The temptation to try your hand at a DIY walkway may be strong, and if you can do it, more power to you, but bear in mind that, unless you have a lot of experience and specialist knowledge, a lot of things can, and will, go wrong with a walkway.
Walkway materials need to be fit for purpose, otherwise, you could end up with cracks and other trip hazards, drainage issues, slippery surfaces, or erosion issues.
Without consulting a professional landscaping/hardscaping company, you may overlook some key aspects of the design and installation process, leading to problems further down the road.
