Brick walkways can be specifically used as a design feature; lining concrete sidewalks, in-ground pools or hot tubs and can be laid in many different design patterns. Talk to our designers and contractors about the different patterns available and how each pattern can add to your specific landscaping scheme. Choosing bricks for your walkways is always an easy design choice because of the various architectural styles that it is compatible with but even more, it is an excellent investment as it is one of the most durable materials on the market. Brick walkways can last for many, many years and be enjoyed for generations to come. With that said, knowing what kind of maintenance is required for whatever kind of outdoor structure that you choose is important. For instance, for stained concrete, you must have it sealed immediately and one to two years after that. Without proper maintenance, you could spend a significant amount of money in repairs.
Here are a few design Ideas for installing brick walkways on your property to enhance the esthetics and functionality of your home.
Mix & Match
Mix & match different materials within your brick walkway to add character to the design. For example, when you mix reclaimed bricks with natural stones, your walkway gets a natural and cozy look. You can use bricks with cobblestones and even concrete. Mixed brick walkways look best around gardens and country settings.
Roomy Brick Walkways
If you are adding a walkway that is meant to be used often by yourself and your family, consider choosing an extra wide walkway so that multiple people can enjoy the walkway at once.
Simple & Functional
Create a simple walkway with a typical pattern and no turns or curves. Design your walkway to starts from the front of your property and leads straight to your door. This design concept is best when you have too many other design features going on. The walkway won’t take away from any of the other features of the way.
Think ahead with a sand base for your brick walkway. Using a sand base will hold the bricks in place regardless of the weather trauma to your walkway. Want an aged, distinguished look? Try using the sand base method with dark red bricks.
Create wonder and excitement by adding a few extra small bricks as stepping stones that lead off of your walkway to additional areas of your yard.
