Pathways and walkways can add continuity and flow between your house and garden. At Backyard Creations we use primarily Flagstone or decomposed granite, however we can install whichever material that you feel best meets your personal taste, budget, and your landscaping needs.
This DIY article; and the rest of the how-to section of my blog, cover much of the basics of how-to properly build flagstone patios. These articles offer general guidelines, or suggestions at least, that will be of much use to the hobbyist, DIY landscaper/builder, and to professional builders as well.
Granite rock naturally breaks down into 1/4-inch or smaller particles called decomposed granite. Loose decomposed granite packs well and provides excellent drainage, making it an ideal mulching material for garden beds, but it is susceptible to erosion and must be maintained often.
