Interlocking Stone and Concrete Walkways
Features of a Well-Designed Walkway
We look at three things when we design a walkway: functionality, safety and durability.
The most popular and durable materials are:
At its core, a well-designed walkway provides users with an intuitive path from one point in a residential, industrial, or commercial property to another, while protecting the surrounding vegetation.
A solid walkway must be safe. It should be level, free from obstructions and wide enough to accommodate expected traffic (groups of people, children or wheelchairs.)
Finally, a walkway should be sturdy and durable. Shoddy workmanship can lead to safety hazards on a pathway so it’s critical to work with the right professionals and the right materials.
Interlocking Stone Walkway
Interlocking stones are durable, stable and attractive. They come in a variety of colors, shapes and textures which allows homeowners to create their own unique design.
For driveway or patios that already uses interlocking stone, it may be a great idea to extend its beauty to the front door or side of the house and into the backyard with a stone pathway.
Additionally, with interlocking stone walkways, water drains quickly and safely. This is because of the gaps between each stone – which is filled in with sand to keep stones in place and weeds from growing – creates multiple paths for rain water or thawed snow to run off. With simple maintenance, interlocking stone landscape creates curb appeal that every neighbor will envy. Click here for the benefits of installing an interlock walkway.

Concrete walkways are one of the most popular choices and for good reason.
With its ability to conform to any figure or path, it allows for flexibility on the walkway designs. Concrete can also be mixed with coloring agents which offers an extensive palette to choose from, and you can choose a variety of concrete finish such as exposed aggregate concrete for better aesthetics.
The right walkway creates a pleasing aesthetic and seamless flow. We work with you to navigate the many ways that interlocking stone and concrete can complement your property.

“Mark Zammit and his team were excellent, professional, courteous and easy to work with and most of all they listened to my concerns, questions and suggestions. They were helpful, and reliable with time commitment. I would wholeheartedly recommend them as they did a fantastic job for my front patio and walkway (interlocking) as well as my concrete walkway at the side of the house.”
