A Slate Walkway For Instant Curb Appeal

A slate walkway is a walkway path paved with flat-cut, thin stone tiles called slate. Slate is a roofing material that has been in use since the Roman era and was used as an alternative to clay tile or wood shingle paths and roads.

Slate walkways are found in both residential and commercial settings. They are often installed on outdoor patios and around swimming pools for safety reasons.

Slate walkways are durable, slip-resistant surfaces that require only minimal upkeep using a broom or leaf blower to create a clean appearance.

Great curb appeal, and I love the curved flower bed. It doesn’t follow the exact lines of the walkway.

Great Curb Appeal

I think the secret to making walkways and flower beds look perfect is creating the curve through mowing. Curved flower beds are an effective way to enhance the curb appeal of your home, and can be easily mowed with just a push mower. For best results, use a new mower blade for this type of project.
