5 Reasons To Install A Walkway

Concrete Walkways

A walkway can be a wonderful addition to your home. It improves curb appeal, increases your home’s value and is a fine way to walk across your home’s landscape.

Check out our set of reasons for recommending a walkway installation.

Convenience

When you install a walkway, be it stone or concrete, it makes the job of reaching your house or your exit easier. You don’t have to walk through the grass or walk on your driveway. You can make your walkway such that it is the shortest distance between your house and the exit. Even guests won’t have to use your driveway or walk through your grass in order to get there – they can enjoy the convenience a walkway provides.

Curb Appeal

If the exterior surroundings of your business or home do not look pleasing then visitors will not feel like visiting. It is that simple. With a driveway in place, your visitors will feel welcomed. Having a walkway gives them a sense of invitation and makes it easy for them to get to your front door or other destination, like your back yard, which ups the curb appeal of your property.

Improves Look of your Home

Moderately elevated walkways can give your landscape the dimension it needs. This will give the landscape more attention and improve the overall look of your home. As mentioned in the previous point, it will in turn make visitors feel welcomed.

Safety

If your home or business is in a region where it snows a lot then building a walkway is the best way to go. It will provide a safe pathway for your visitors as well as yourself during bad weather so that people don’t have to wade through the snow. Plus, it is easier to shovel a walkway than an entire driveway.

A few paver walkway ideas which you could ask your landscaping contractor about are:

  1. Straight path

A straight design gives the visitor a formal entry that leads them right to your front door.

  1. Curved path

The curved pathway gives an informal look to your front yard.

  1. Colored concrete

Concrete can be transformed to nearly any color imaginable with concrete staining and dying products.

  1. Stamped concrete

Stamping concrete will transform a standard slab of concrete to look like natural stone or pavers.

  1. Decorative borders

Adding a border to your concrete walkway can change the look drastically from an average slab to a one of a kind path.

  1. Exposed aggregate

When you install this type of walkway, it almost seems as though you’re walking on gravel when you’re making your way to the front door, however, it’s a textured, mixed and colored surface that doesn’t move beneath your feet.
