Walkway Ideas to DIY in the Summer
Hot weather is almost here! Our family loves to play games, spend some evenings popping corn and watching movies, or simply relax outside the house during summer.
Our yard needs to get in shape to get us prepared for the summer to come. The walkway deserves our attention as it connects different areas in our home.
This is the reason why I am excited to share with you some of my favorite DIY walkway ideas. From gravel to brick, bluestone to concrete, and easy garden paths, these stunning DIY walkway ideas will definitely add flair to your landscaping.
1. Pallet Walkway
Gather some old wooden pallets and arrange them on your walkway following a creative style and patterns. You can also paint them to add a more interesting structure.
2. Concrete Walkway
Looking for concrete walkway ideas? Concrete is also an economical way to make outdoor walkways.
You can use a wok maker to quickly form your concrete walkway. Just make sure to scrape away any mulch or loose dirt and level the pathway out before layering the gravel and the concrete.
3. Pebble Mosaic Walkway
Here’s one of my favorite rock walkway ideas. If you want to have a pebble walkway, you can buy drain rock in bulk.
It is practical and inexpensive, but you need to sort the pebbles yourself according to colors and sizes. So, before working out the design, make sure to sort the pebbles first.
You can use colored pebbles for a more vibrant result. And once you’ve completed this project, you’ll be surprised how your pebble mosaic walkway captures everyone’s attention.
4. Stepping Stones Walkway
This stepping stones walkway is an easy and inexpensive way to add charm to your outdoor space. All you need is your stepping stones, sharp garden knife, garden spade, a trowel, soft sand, and your cement, to create a more inviting and functional pathway.
Just ensure to lay your paving slabs in position with the right spacing and depth.
5. Gravel Walkway
Flatten the walkway, set the borders and lay in your gravel and you’ll have a natural-looking walkway. Just make sure you rake the stones to keep the path smoother and refill it with more gravel as necessary to maintain the walkway.
6. Paver Walkway
Create a dazzling walkway out of pavers without breaking your back and your pocket. DIYing this project is not difficult.
The result? A beautiful natural stone walkway that will last for years. Make sure to sweep dry, and pour the fine sand over the walkway to refill the gaps and pad tiles from each other.
7. Flagstone Walkway
It surely adds a natural look to any walkway.
8. Brick Pattern Walkway
A brick pattern walkway is a wonderful addition to any home and adds to the beauty of your landscaping. With some brick-style pavers, sands, and a few other tools, you’ll be able to create a beautiful brick walkway for your home.
9. Wood Slices Walkway
To start, you’ll need a few logs of any size, slice them off, lay the slices out on a bed of sand and let them take your walkway to a different level of style. Finish off by putting sand and gravel over the slices to fill the gaps between rounds.
10. Stenciled Walkway
Add some color and style to a plain and a little boring concrete walkway with painted stencils. All you need are a couple cans of paint, a stencil pattern, and a bit of creativity to make this unique walkway.
And if it fades, just touch it up as needed.

11. Tiled Walkway
Take advantage of the different sizes and colors of tiles available and get creative in designing your own walkway. You may need to use tile spacers to keep an equal distance between tiles.
The tiles are not only visually appealing, but they are also easy to maintain.
12. Concrete Pavers with Lava Rocks Walkway
Give your lawn a charm and transform it into a more inviting entryway with this concrete pavers with lava rocks walkway. Just surround your concrete pavers in a cut-out bed with red lava rocks, and your walkway will surely make a statement.
13. DIY Stone and Moss Walkway
Avoid putting the mixture on the stones as the moss will grow on them as well, and this could make your walkway slippery during wet conditions. It may need a little maintenance, but you’ll enjoy the charm it provides.
14. Mulch and Stone Walkway
All you have to do is lay out the edging and spread the mulch around your flat stones or stepping stones.
15. Bluestone Walkway
This traditional bluestone walkway definitely gives an earnest charm to any entryway. Choose different patterns and color stands out for its timeless appeal and appearance.
16. Repurposing Bricks to Make a Walkway
It’s a clever way to add a whimsical feel to your outdoor space. Plus, it won’t break your budget.
