You can rely on a basic from-here-to-there walkway, or you can upgrade yours with ideas that are beautiful and practical. The first step is to choose your material — one that complements your house and landscape design. The options are varied: brick, gravel, cut stone, or flagstone, for example. If brick is your choice, you’ll want to find a style and pattern that’s a good fit for your home and garden; wander through our gallery of ideas.
