Walkway Recommendations

Question: There's a walkway in my back yard, which goes from the patio to the vegetable garden. It's made of cement pavers, about 18 inches wide and maybe 36 inches long. It makes for a narrow walkway. Plus it's too close to the garage, maybe 18 to 20 inches away from the wall, so when it rains, the water pours down on the walkway, and anyone using it. It also tends to be very slippery with snow and ice in the winter. I want to remove the pavers, relocate the walkway and use something else, hopefully something less slippery. My dilemma is that I can't think of something to replace it.

Answer: There are a couple of things that you can do:

  1. Pour a concrete walkway and texture the surface.
  2. Use flagstones, a path rather than a total walkway.
  3. Use pavers that are textured.
  4. Use crushed gravel, crushed concrete or river rock.
