14 Breathtaking Garden Pathway Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Pathways make a nice finishing touch to any garden or landscaping project, adding interest, functionality, and organization. Paths can be made from a variety of materials to suit any budget. A beautiful pathway can be created out of just about anything – reclaimed wood, colorful pebbles, concrete, and more.

Wooden Garden Pathways

Garden pathways made of wood are attractive and are inexpensive compared to many other options.  They can be made using wood recycled from pallets and other sources and are less labor-intensive than stone or concrete.
