Do you have any opinions about backyard path surfaces? The original plan was just concrete, but that is not so pretty. Pam suggested stamped concrete
, in perhaps a brick or stone pattern. Stamped concrete might look like this cobblestone pattern
. I appreciate that it's probably more stable and long-lasting than actual cobblestones, and easier to walk on, but I'm worried that it'll look painfully fake. What do you think?
We have Unilock in a herringbone red brick pattern in the front. (Didn't choose it -- came with house.)
Any thought on good path surfaces would be appreciated. Ideally it should be pretty, low-cost, low-maintenance. (For example, I love the look of blue-grey gravel, especially around vegetable beds, but it is apparently a pain in the ass to maintain?)
