Patios, Paths, Pavers & Steps

Walkways, paths, and steps are integral to the flow of both your yard’s layout and its traffic patterns. They can help set a mood and create a seamless design, as well as facilitate smooth transitions from point to point.

When well-planned, they can complement other structures, patios, and plantings–and become interesting focal points in their own right.

In this section of HomeTips, you will find advice for making decisions when buying materials for walkways and steps, and you will discover lots of step-by-step help for DIY installation and repair of pathways and steps.
