Paths are more than just a way of linking one place to another, pathways can be the heart and soul of a garden. Their installation gives direction to a space, defines its edges, leads the way to a focal point or simply makes access to make planting much easier.
Materials for Paths
The materials used to create a path also lend a degree of personality to a garden from gravel crunching under foot to stone slabs giving a feeling of solidity. Stepping stone paths can be created using paving slabs set into decorative gravel or for a very low maintenance option, resin bound gravel is becoming more popular.
Where edgings are required to provide restraint for materials, there are a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours to add the finishing touch and complement the style of the path.
We can create a design for you to suit your needs or bring your own garden ideas into creation.
"We wanted to build a ramp up to our front door and create level paths throughout the garden to allow wheelchair access. Jamie made a site visit, understood what we were trying to achieve and made suggestions as necessary. Before the work began, it was clearly explained to us how the project would progress, which was very helpful. Every staff member we dealt with was courteous and easy to deal with. We were very impressed by their team work, how tidy they were, and their ability to find good solutions to problems. The amount of progress they achieved in challenging winter weather was astonishing. It was great to be able to communicate with the office via email and phone, and Kim was excellent at keeping us updated and informed. We feel the job was money very well spent and we’re delighted with what Gardens Galore have done for us."
