Publisher Comments:

"...a work of art as well as a manual...an inspiration."--ForeWord Magazine. Get where you want to go...in style, on an attractively laid out path or walkway that blends beauty and utility. Whether you desire a captivating stepping-stone path winding through garden gates; a classic brick walk leading guests up to your front door; or gravelworks paving a gently sloping site, all the confusing wheres and hows of designing, choosing a material, and putting down a base are cleared away. Brimful of magnificent photos (including a gallery) and instructions that literally lay out every step of the process, this guide alerts you to some easy-to-miss practicalities right from the start--reminding you, for example, sharp gravel will hurt the tender feet of any barefoot children running around or brick or concrete will make handling a stroller or wheelchair much simpler. Try ornamental stone, grass, pine needles, concrete--personalized with embedded shells or writing, elegant cut stone, intriguingly shaped natural stone, versatile and (if you want) colorful brick--each lovelier than the last.

Synopsis:

This creative guide teaches readers the best materials and methods to use in building a path or walkway. Packed with color photos, it gives a wealth of ideas for creating paths from stone, grass, pine needles and concrete, among others. Illustrations.
