How to Create Your Own Pathways and Patios
Summer is on the way! It may be time to update your patio, build a new walkway or even a garden pathway.
Pathways, patios and walkways can define outdoor spaces, connect various elements in your garden or yard and add a bit of charm. Here are a few of these projects you can do on your own.
A garden patio built using interlocking pavers is a project that can be finished in a single day and when it's time for something larger, is easily expanded. In this video, I use Interlocking key-shaped pavers that fit together like puzzle pieces. A small patio like this is perfect for BBQ's, a few chairs and even a fire pit.

This patio project uses stone-shaped pavers to create a more relaxed, informal look. Placed on a leveled sand foundation, the patio also incorporates pea gravel and landscape fabric to prevent weed growth and allow for good drainage. How to make a patio from concrete pavers
This crushed rock and flagstone walkway is perhaps the ultimate when it comes to a creating a casual feeling. Its free-flowing shape is ideal for winding around flower gardens, shrubs, trees and other natural features. How to make a crushed rock pathway
If you like making things from scratch, why not make your own pavers? You can do just that with a reusable plastic form or mold that's set in place, filled with concrete and then lifted off leaving nicely shaped stones or bricks. Color can be added directly to the mixing water to create a wide range of hues and tones. Make your own walkway using concrete forms
