I am headed out today to a local nursery to get ideas on creative stone paths. We have a pathway in our yard that leads to the pool area which consists of cement blocks my dad added over twenty five years ago. The grass grows in between and they are cracked and old. I love stone pathways that are flanked with gorgeous perennials and annuals. We didn’t do much landscaping last year but I am hoping to tackle a few small landscape projects this spring and summer.
One of which will be creating a stone pathway, something casual, that leads to the pool. Here are some beautiful stone paths that have gotten me motivated to get started.
My dad would love this one below. He could ride right over the stones with the lawn mower. ha
I like the idea of flagstone and mulch but I am worried about the mulch ending up in the pool area.
Did you know that Lowes sells these circular stones? I had no idea.
I think the pathway we have now would look fabulous with flowering shrubs on either side like this one below.
My mom loves to see inspirational photographs of ideas before we get started on a project. She is a visual person like me, as is my dad. Although he would be completely satisfied living with a cement yard. No maintenance. Every landscaping project we do, I have to agree to maintain it. Most of the ideas and projects I love require some sort of maintenance. The price you pay for a beautiful yard right? Have a great weekend, I’m off to the nursery to scope out stone paths and flowers!
