Walkways are an important part of front yard landscaping; a beautiful walkway greatly enhances the first impression of your home.

When landscaping a yard, walkways often get overlooked. It is important to consider how to connect the different spaces in the yard you want the walkway to look nice and be easy to walk on since it will serve as an entrance to your home. Don’t overdo the curves because then people will take shortcuts through your front lawn.
There are a few aspects that should be considered when deciding on your walkway. The first one is the size of your yard. Typically, small front yards look best with a simple straight walkway, while a curved walkway can add much needed design interest to a large front garden. The second factor is the style of your home. Straight paths are an option. A straight entry walkway will help to emphasize your front door as the focal point of your home.
