There are many materials that we can use to create a garden path but the wood provides us with a great natural decoration. We have collected some ideas here so you can use wood as a material to design your garden path. Now is the best time, the cold away and want a lot to be in the garden putting it to point and giving the final touches to look spectacular.
Wood is a very versatile material that can serve us well to create paths and paths in our garden. And as you will see in the various ideas collected we can use wood with a huge range of finishes and varieties. We can choose between using new or recovered woods and among different types of cuts that allow us to better appreciate the possibilities of wood.
Without forgetting the combinations with other materials, especially natural ones, that are very good together with the wood. The stone, the gravel as in this case, iron and cement are some of them.
When we talk about garden paths we refer both to provisional and final projects, to solutions that only cover a small section or that go from the entrance of the house to the garden.
Here we see an elegant solution with exotic wood and white gravel that is completed with small hedges cut in the shape of a sphere like topiary and road lights.
One of the most impressive cuts of wood to create garden paths is the one that is made sliced on the trunk without roughing. It allows us to use them as if they were tiles or paving stones and they have a very good aesthetic.
With the wooden roads it is important to do a good previous work to create a firm base and get a good leveling. Generally we will reduce the terrain a few centimeters and we will scatter gravel creating a layer of several centimeters.
Sometimes we can be interested in a more rustic and more natural aspect although this does not prevent the woods are firmly fixed to the ground and as level as possible.
The trunk slices must have a rough cut, not too thin, so they are safe and do not slip. Especially when they are in humid environments and with the possibility of being covered with moss.
The combination of wood and gravel can be done in various ways but it is still one of the simplest and most practical.
