Here are the things you need to consider when you are in the market for walkway materials for your project. 

Defining the Purpose of the Walkway

Before deciding on the material and the design of the walkway, you should first consider for what will it be used. You should determine if this will lead to an important feature on your outdoor landscape or if it will serve an aesthetic purpose.

Walkways are installed for various reasons. Apart from directing foot traffic to a certain location, it can also help set borders around a specific outdoor area. It is also used to draw people to a focal point like a garden or fountain. It also provides texture and contrast to the surrounding landscape.
