A well-designed walkway keeps your feet dry and provides safe, easy access to your house. A great one does more. When you work with Lehnhoff Landscaping, you can be assured that your walkway will always be in the “does more” category. Whether it directs you and your guests under an archway of jasmine or around a bend to a reflecting pool, a walkway that works makes the garden more inviting. A successful path also shapes and defines garden areas, as it connects unrelated parts to create a coherent whole.
At Lehnhoff Landscaping, we believe that the most important function of a path is to link the house to the garden visually as well as physically, and we go out of our way to see the bigger picture.
Before getting to work, it’s important that your path is properly plotted. Our experts will help you determine the best course of action in connecting different aspects of your property.
Plotting the Right Path with Lehnhoff Landscapers
While there are several different paths your walkway can take, the most important kind is the primary path, which leads to or from the front and back doors, and often connects with the street or sidewalk.
Generally, it’s best to keep a path near the house to extend the architecture of the building. A straight path is easy to follow and predictable and produces a formal look, which is appropriate near the house. Your preferences, though, are always top of mind, and you will work directly with Lehnhoff Landscaping’s owner, Rob Lehnhoff, to ensure everything is how you want it to be. Rob will also be happy to provide a free consultation in which he can hear your vision and work within the parameters that you set.
Choosing the Right Materials for Your Walkway
Nearly as important as creating a pathway is choosing the right materials. Soft surfaces include a variety of mulches and turf. Hard surfaces, including brick and stone pavers, offer variety and good looks. Both have their positive attributes and drawbacks, and you need to consider what’s most important to you. Complementing your house with a path that fits in visually and is made of materials that blend with the style and materials of the house and surrounding structures is very appealing to many people, and a primary path that sees heavy traffic must be made from a material that’s set firmly in place and provides an even, nonslip surface.
