Creating a pathway in your garden might seem like a complicated job that requires a lot of backbreaking work, and expert knowledge. Thankfully, it’s easier than you’d think! At Garden Hub, we supply everything you may need to create the perfect garden path.
Advantages to using gravel on your garden paths
Our expert landscaper says: “You could spend several days and hundreds of pounds, putting in a path made of concrete, paving or tarmac. A gravel path is not only more attractive but it also won’t break your back or budget. Traditionally, decorative aggregate is a path (and driveway) material that takes little skill to install. An afternoon to get it down and you’ll soon have a natural-looking, weed-free way to walk through your perfect landscape.”
Easy how to: Creating a luxurious rustic path
Step 1: Choose a relatively flat, low traffic site for your walkway and dig out a path to a depth of 2-4 inches.
Step 2: Place large stones, single file, along both edges. Our range of boulders and rockery stones, available on our website, are ideal for this purpose.
Step 3: You’ll need a permeable landscaping fabric to separate your gravel from the soil beneath – and to suppress weeds. Our professional-grade, heavy-duty, Ground Control Fabric is ideal – just ensure there is at least a few inches overlap each side of your path. Tuck the fabric under the stones and you’re ready for the final step!
Step 4: Choose a decorative gravel to lay over the path. Some prefer a round pebble style covering as it is less likely to get compacted, others a more angular and crunchy surface. If you aren’t sure how much gravel to buy – there’s a handy gravel calculator on our website.
