Walkway & Sidewalk Materials
Our expertise with all standard paving materials allows us to guide you to the perfect choices for your property and priorities.
- Concrete walkways and sidewalks – Concrete allows for smooth, flowing lines and graceful curves. The durable, seamless surface withstands heavy foot traffic and resists cracking and chipping when properly sealed. Concrete works well for both modern and traditional home styles.
- Walkway pavers – Clay brick and concrete pavers exude old-world charm and come in diverse colors, shapes, textures and patterns. Pavers won’t crack but the joints between them can allow weed growth if not maintained. Pavers offer affordability and work well for traditional, Mediterranean and rustic homes.
- Gravel walkways – For a permeable, rustic ambiance, gravel pathways consisting of small stones provide a scenic, natural look. Gravel shifts naturally and requires edging and annual raking to maintain neatly. The crunchy sound underfoot enhances the organic vibe.
- Flagstone pavers – Multicolored, irregularly shaped flagstone slabs create an elegant, organic look. Flagstone works well for gardens, wooded areas, and landscapes aiming for a cohesive natural flow. Flagstone requires annual sealing and more frequent repair of uneven pieces.
- Wood planks – For a warm, welcoming feel, wood infuses natural flair. Wood adds wonderful texture but requires thorough weatherproofing to endure the elements long-term. Wood is ideal for rustic homes and wooded, lush landscapes.
Walkway and Sidewalk Types and Ideas
- Straight Sidewalks – Efficient, linear sidewalks are ideal for navigating narrow garden borders and directing foot traffic in straight lines.
- Curving Walkways – Graceful, winding walkways allow you to elegantly bridge different sections of your landscape, creating appealing depth and dimensions.
- Pathways – Rustic cobblestone or gravel pathways add old-world ambiance to gardens, patios, and wooded sections of your property, beckoning visitors to explore nature.
- Stepping Stone Walkways – Irregularly placed, naturally shaped stepping stones create whimsical, almost ethereal pathways that evoke a secret garden feel.
- Garden Walkway Tiles – Make your garden inviting and accessible by adding stone or concrete walk way tiles.
Walkway Design Considerations
We focus on critical details to construct walkways and sidewalks tailored to your unique property.
- Width – Walkway widths range from quaint single-person pathways to wide promenades for pairs. We determine ideal dimensions based on usage and surroundings.
- Borders and Patterns – Decorative concrete borders, paver arrangements, and inset accents add visual flair. Any patterns you desire can be incorporated tastefully.
- Complimentary Landscaping – Flowers, shrubs, lighting fixtures, and benches along the route enhance ambiance. We ensure plantings don’t obstruct walkways.
- Proper Lighting – Ambient ground lights and path fixtures provide illumination for navigation and accent lighting for ambiance. Lighting enables use after dark.
- Compliance with Codes – We adhere to ADA and local requirements. Gradual slopes, railings, non-slip surfaces, and width ensure accessible, safe passage for all users.
