A front yard walkway creates a defined path that provides visual interest and accents your home’s entrance. A walkway also prevents worn paths through your yard, helps to keep dirt from being tracked indoors and avoids muddy shoes during rainy weather. If you want to dress up your front yard, there’s no need to call a contractor; a walkway is a home improvement project you can design and build yourself.
A walkway can be a straight path from your front door to your driveway, or a meandering trail that curves and winds around existing plants and other points of interest. Straight walkways are more formal than those that have curves or loosely defined edges. Draw an aerial view of your yard and the proposed walkway. This gives you the opportunity to change the walkway’s configuration until you are satisfied with the design.
