Combine Materials

Consider combining brick with other materials for a patchwork-quilt path that leads to a cozy seating area or hidden garden. One of the benefits of this approach is that it appears worn and timeless – like it’s always been there.

Match Bricks for Continuity

If you have a home that features a brick exterior or a wall, by all means go ahead and match the walkway or pathway with the same kind of brick. This adds stately continuity to your home and landscape alike.

Create a Grand Entrance

For immediate curb appeal go with a long and straight path that accents your home. Gates can also add to this stateliness.

Pair Brick with Stepping Stones

Brick can be a beautiful solution for areas that have frequent foot traffic. The brick helps keep the grass in place between the stones and also allows people to wander off the path for a different view.

Brick as a Border

The structure inherent in brick lends itself nicely to being a border along a walkway or garden bed. Brick can outline the path of soft grass, which is a treat for bare feet.

Checkerboard Pattern

Speaking of bare feet, a checkerboard pattern is a great way to add structure to grass. Brick acts as the dark squares of the checkerboard and softens the look and feel of brick pavers.
