Roads and paths crossing a garden are the elements that determine, in large part, its structure and design divisions, the various areas and sectors that the garden will. Roads can be designed and constructed in various ways, but one thing is essential: should be drawn at the time of garden design. That is the principle. When faced with the delineation of the future garden, we project ourselves to what we want and use vials as best as possible. Transcendent would begin by determining the main roads, those direct to the doors of the house, and for various nearby construction.
Subsequently, we can design it and think of those secondary paths, which lead to less crowded areas, which already could acquire other forms, curved or zigzag.
The materials of the paths
The materials with which to build a garden paths are varied. Sand, gravel, crushed stone, tile, concrete, among others. The important thing would be to continue the established style of the house and the general environment, ie both aesthetic match to achieve a special harmony throughout the land.
I personally consider to be one of the highlights latter, harmony and combination between home and garden, whether modern or rustic, urban or rural.
Regarding the possible materials for the construction of roads, it is essential to foresee how busy it will be such a path, and to determine and choose the material stronger or less. For the main paths is always advisable to use more durable and resistant materials, such as concrete or slab, in the case of secondary or less traveled paths, options expand. In turn, each path also can be decorated with lighting or ambientarse particular, always according to the environment and the sector in which it is.
