Pathways + Trails
Pathways + Trails:
There as so many different techniques and processes to create a pathway. Many of our customers do it this way:
- At least 2 ft wide (the best is 3-4 ft).
- Put a weed barrier down.
- Landscape fabric works great to create a base layer to suppress weeds. (If left for too many seasons weeds and roots can grow into the fabric and be difficult to remove.)
- You don't need any nutrient providing material for pathways so finding the most inexpensive product that isn't messy tends to work best.
- If using bark or cedar chips lay down 3-8" of material.
- If using gravel we recommend 3-4" layer of 1/4" Minus finished with a 2" layer of 1/4 clean crushed gravel.
Customers often use:
- Do not mix into your garden that can affect soil nutrient
- Creates a soft path that is easy to walk on. Can spread and be a bit messy.
- Gravel- Clean and durable pathway. Great for in between garden beds but not great for open gardens (can be messy and spread gravel)
