Leading someone Up the Garden Path is a well known saying which is not meant to be understood literally, but it is equally true that a path makes all the difference to a garden. Whether leading to a focal point or just gently curving out of sight a path adds an extra dimension to the landscape. This article by Shalini which I found on the Decozilla website describes ten path designs which will give you some great ideas.
Gardens look very beautiful and neat when you pave a clear pathway in it leading to either in side your home, or towards the flowerbed, fountain, or sitting area or any interesting spot in your garden, paths and pathways always make it look very neat and give a spectacular view to any garden no matter what its size. You can even plan for pathways in small gardens to make it appear bigger and better or at least much better than a just open pathless garden. Look at the examples listed below to have an idea about the various pathways that you can design in your garden.
This is a red brick pathway that is neatly laid out in a curved pathway in two rows in each section that is divided with a wooden bar, this brick pathway is one of the cost effective pathways that can be used in the gardens and is a thin brick that is used to make it look beautiful.
Look at this broken stone pathway where the path is laid with stone tiles that are broken and are of various shapes and sizes, this gives a rough look to the garden pathway and is one of the sturdy path too.
