Garden path made of natural stone slabs
Diverse design options with stone slabs for Terrace and garden path
Paths connect people and places. This is also the practical function of a garden path. If the path is designed to match the garden and the terrace slabs, it also gives a very harmonious picture and fits seamlessly into the outdoor design. What could be better than tread plates made of the same natural stone as the terrace floor? But it is not only the appearance that plays a role, but also the function and durability of the material. Natural stone cannot be beaten in terms of durability! We inform and inspire you about the diverse design options for natural stone garden paths!
The modern garden path
Rectangular natural stone slabs can be laid in a semi-structured to a garden path. The extremely minimalist effect of the installation format emphasizes the charm of modern terraces and houses. Granite slabs, slate slabs or travertine with a homogeneous surface are particularly suitable as modern slabs. It is also modern to create paths in a reduced and puristic way. Instead of a coherent garden path, individual plates are placed as tread plates in the green lawn or in the gravel bed.
The classic garden path
A natural stone with sawn edges, a finely ground surface, and a straight laying pattern – in this case, these are the ingredients for an elegant and classic garden path. A professional base layer for the pavement slabs is just as important as when laying the terrace so that the subsoil is stable and the way out of natural stone slabs will withstand the weather.
The Mediterranean garden path
All garden paths lead to Rome: with travertine or sandstone slabs, which are laid in the Roman association, you can create Mediterranean flair at home in no time. If the Roman bandage is used as a laying format for a garden path, the basic pattern differs depending on the width of the path. The format, which is not quite as accurate, fits harmoniously into a natural garden design.
The rustic garden path
No sidewalk slabs cut into a rectangular shape, but slabs with many corners and edges: polygonal slabs loosen up the garden design, because their shape also reminds of the originality of the stone. “Polygonal” means “polygonal” and thus stands for natural stone slabs that have no fixed format but are randomly punched and laid in shape. They are a little out of fashion now, but you can still find gardens and entrance areas that have been designed in a natural and rustic way.
The practical garden path
A garden path that meanders through flower and vegetable beds has to endure a lot, e.g. dirty rubber boots, plant waste, and bird droppings. An uncomplicated natural stone is suitable for this, which can handle a certain amount of load, such as a heavy wheelbarrow and can also be easily cleaned of dirt after work. Uncomplicated travertine or a classic bluestone, as shown here, are ideal for this.
