Garden paths are an essential element in most landscapes as they provide a way to easily walk around your yard and move equipment.  Often, pathways are a means to get from the front yard to backyard, particularly from the garage.  Surface materials can range from colored, stamped concrete to crushed rock.  Fredell Enterprises utilizes a variety of materials depending on the desired look of the landscape, the intended pathway use, and project budget.

Concrete is the most formal and expensive walkway surface.  Asphalt has good durability and traction (for steep slopes) and is surprisingly cost-effective.  Our most popular material is something we call ‘soil-cement’, which is a mixture of breeze gravel (crusher-fines) with cement and coloring.  It has a finished look similar to a trail, except that the cement binds the crushed material together to create a durable garden path that provides significant resistance to erosion from water and foot traffic.
