Create Paths

Make your garden path something special by using natural coloured aggregates, such as gravel or slate. Use the pathway to complement an existing design scheme and highlight rocks, plants and other features in your garden. 

Make you own path

It really could not be easier or quicker to form your pathway. Draw out your path using string or a marker, dig out, compact the base, (using an Mot type material if required), lay your membrane and level out the gravel of your choice on top. Be as inspired as you like by making curves, patterns or paths that cross in different aggregates and to lead the focus through the garden.

On sloping ground, a 20mm Slate chipping or the Cotswold Gold Path is the best to use, as they can easily cope with uneven ground. Use these products to create undulating paths and steps.

We would recommend that a gravel no bigger than 16mm be used on path ways - usually the 10mm size is considered the most suitable, we have lots for you to choose from on in our Gravel and Aggregates category. It’s easier and more stable for walking on. Alternatively 20mm slate can be used and is particularly good as its flat pieces lay together and form a solid surface for walking on.

If you need a little more from your path than just to be walked on, such as prams, bikes, wheelchairs etc. Keep that natural feel with the Cotswold Golden Path. It is ideal as it provides a long lasting solid base with a natural grit surface and a beautiful golden finish.

For the ultimate gravel finish, use the resin bonded system. This combines the natural look and feel of a gravel with a hardwearing finish that is cost effective and easy to maintain. For more information visit our resin bonded aggregates pages or visit our dedicated resin bonded aggregates website at

Rockery Stones can be used to provide a natural edging to the path, framing the edges in a highly decorative fashion. Think of a meandering pathway edged in rockery, through the garden with stunning slate features, boulders and beautiful gravel, combined with artful planting, limited only by your imagination. You will find a fabulous selection in our Pebbles and Cobbles section or in our Boulders and Rockery section.
