If you want to get a “country” feel to your yard, building a stone walkway is a perfect addition to get that look. According to an article by the DIY Network, building a stone walkway is an easy to moderate task well-suited for the do-it-yourselfers.
In this project you will:
- Plan the Walkway Design
- Take Measurements and Order Materials
- ‘Dry Lay’ the Walkway
- Prep the Walkway Base
- Set and Shape the Stones
- Add a Cobblestone Border
- Clean Up and Replant Grass
The ideal material for stone walkways will consist of the largest and flattest rocks you can find. Greater mass equals greater stability. Choose the path that your stone walkway will take. Avoid having your stone walkway under trees because the tree roots may eventually damage your path. Allow yourself a weekend and price range $500-$1,000 to complete this task. This maybe a process but at least you can call this stone walkway your own!
