Layer up a great gravel path

Gravel can transform your walkway in an instant. Get large stones compacted down on 4 inches of crushed stone and 1 inch of sand.

Add some art to your path

Using cement paint and a template, apply two coats, and leave to dry for 48 hours. To finish, add two coats over a two-day period.

Turn a pallet into a pathway

Break apart a pallet, arrange the slats in a line, and embed in some soil. Press down and line with rocks and plants for a makeshift walkway.

Design a glittering stone mosaic

Transform a block path with a mosaic. Pour cement into the crevasses around each block. Then, insert painted stones and allow to dry.

Revamp your path with paint

Add depth to your walkway with concrete stain. Apply with a roller and allow to dry. Add a second coat to give light-grey concrete a new sheen.
