It’s time to replace or build a walkway at your home and you may be asking yourself, “which walkway material is the best to go with”? We are here to help you learn the differences between walkway materials and help you decide which walkway will be the best fit for you.
Concrete walkways are a fantastic option if you are looking for something durable that will last you up to 30 years! Not only is concrete more sustainable, but concrete walkway costs are more efficient than other options. Concrete is also a great alternative as you can choose between many different design options to match your style:
Pavers are one of the most popular materials used for walkways. Like concrete walkways, paver walkways give you the ability to choose designs that fit best with the overall style you are looking for. There are dozens of options ranging in shape, size, texture, and color. Using pavers for your walkway does tend to run 10-15% higher in price compared to concrete walkways.
Gravel walkways are a great alternative when you are looking for something that is more cost-effective. Since there is less labor that goes into installing gravel walkways, it tends to be cheaper than other options. Although gravel will give a more natural look compared to concrete or pavers, it will be messier in the long run! With rain, snow, wind, etc., the gravel is going to move into your yard causing more work in the end.
Flagstone is the most expensive walkway material on the market! One of the reasons it is more costly is due to the time of labor it takes to set each unique piece into a proper pattern. While concrete usually runs anywhere from $3-$6 flagstone can range anywhere from $15-$20 a square foot. If you are looking for a more upscale, natural, and rustic look then flagstone is the way to go. There is always the option of installing a concrete walkway with a flagstone stamp to give you the same look at a fraction of the price!
There are many different options when it comes to choosing a walkway. Factors to consider are the price, the labor it takes, and the design aesthetic you are looking for.
