KG Landscape’s construction team has a keen eye for developing and implementing your walkway design plans. We’ll come to your property to evaluate your current walkway, or land where you want to place one. From there, our design team will work on drafting construction plans that you can peruse at your leisure. Once we get approval, we start our construction process. Our walkways are custom designed to perfectly match your landscape. Walkways can be straight, curved, or a combination of both.
With the average lifespan of a walkway stretching decades, our Minnesota landscapers can assist you in the layout and installation of a walkway that will stand the test of time. Our team is university-educated in landscape designand turf care and strive to bring our customers and clients the best lawn care services in Minneapolis.
The geometry and width that best suit your property are determined by a number of factors, including:
Length of the walkway
The layout of any existing landscape
Topography of your yard
Walkway Construction Materials Overview for Minneapolis, MN
The materials you select to construct your walkway should compliment the overall look & feel of your landscape. KG Landscape’s technique of using organic shapes like plants with hardscape elements is a tested process that took years to craft. We’ll help you choose your materials wisely, so you can be assured that you are making the right choices. It often helps to browse pictures of landscape designs to determine which material to go with – and of course, consult a professional should you have questions.
When constructing a walkway, a number of materials can be used to build a functional and aesthetically pleasing walkway. We offer several options, and will help you narrow your choice down. Each material has its own benefits and disadvantages.
Natural stone looks great, but because there are cracks, weeds will pop up. You’ll have to grab some weed-b-gone at the store at the start of the summer and spray your walkway once or twice a month.
Pavers and Bricks are beautiful, but has a tendency to become misaligned over time. Bricks can start popping out or sinking in if the soil gets compacted. KG Landscape uses techniques like using drainage and base material to combat this.
Concrete is very functional and will cause the least amount of stress, but it may be the most bland out of all the options. But, an upside to the blandness is that it will match your driveway, giving you a completely uniform look throughout your landscape.
Rock or loose filling is very easy to install and is great for a budget, but with loose rocks, it’s easy to kick them up in a lawn mower.
Wood, such as mulch or timbers, like rock is very easy to install and great for a tight budget. Again, it’s tough to keep all that in one place, and it may get messy if you don’t spend time caring for it.
