At Kalberer Construction, we believe you should make the most out of your outdoor living spaces, and we offer expert construction services to make that possible. While landscapes full of greenery and flowers are nice to look at, these spaces will be hard to use unless you add some hardscaping features, such as walkways or patios. Fortunately, our team has extensive experience in designing and building walkways for outdoor spaces, and in this article, we’ll go over a few reasons why you should consider adding them to your own property.

Reasons to Add Walkways to Your Landscape

The first reason why we recommend including walkways in your landscape, instead of allowing the grass to cover everything, has to do with ease of accessibility. Walking over vegetation is not always easy — for example, it’s hard to push a stroller over grass, much less a wheelchair. On top of that, in wet conditions, walking across a soaked lawn becomes unpleasant at best and treacherous at worst. If you want to make it as easy as possible to get around your yard in all circumstances, you should include walkways in your design.

Walkways can also greatly enhance the visual design of your landscape. These days, it’s standard practice for landscapes to include hardscaping elements such as walkways, retaining walls, and patios, in addition to vegetation. The contrast between the hard stone or brick and the soft leaves and flowers creates visual interest, making the overall landscape look more beautiful and balanced. When you’d like to enhance and upgrade your yard with walkways, simply give our team a call to get started.
