4 ways to create paths and walkways.jpeg


Paths can make your home and garden more accessible and inviting. They can even be an attractive feature. 


Bunnings Workshop community members have shared many inspiring path and walkway projects, utilising diverse materials such as decking boards, pavers, pebbles and bricks. We would be happy to help you build your own.


1. Decking


A path made out of decking can be a practical and stylish addition to your outdoor area. @Silvia used timber decking to build a path to her front door and lined it with PebbleLock and pebbles.

2. Pavers

Pavers are known for their durability and versatility, making them a popular material for paths. @Brett used charcoal pavers and pebbles to refresh his side path and added a bike shelter.

Bunnings Workshop members have also built paths using travertine, porcelain, brick and mortar pavers.


3. Bluestone rounds


Bluestone rounds are a great way to add character to your outdoor spaces. @Jason built a rambling path from his front gate to the front door using Bluestone rounds to make the trek in wet weather easier.

Jason also used bluestone rounds for a path down the side of the house


4. Concrete 


Concrete paths can offer a stable and slip-resistant surface, especially when finished with appropriate textures or sealants. Fresh concrete with a charcoal semi-gloss sealer provided a neat and practical solution to @Nham's overgrown sideway.
