Take some inspiration from these DIY garden path ideas to make it by yourself. One of the most basic DIY garden path ideas that you can do is a gravel path that is cheap and affordable and easy to do. You also don’t have to dig very deep to achieve what you want even on cold-weather climates. The tiny stones move fluidly, so the winter’s freezes and thaws won’t heave and crack the surface in the same way they would with a rigid material like stones or pavers.
Or try to enhance your basic gravel path by adding brick-shaped stones on each side of the path and this idea also allow you to accentuate the edges of the path to give more dimension and feel. This stone edged gravel path also gently tells the people on the path to stay on it. Select pea stone that is about the size of jelly beans for the best gravel for covering the path and it also can easily be shoveled.
