All you need is a willingness to get dirty and some basic materials that we outline on our website.
Calculate your materials based on: 4-inches of crushed stone, 1-inch of sand and your gravel. Use our handy method to determine the amount you need here: http://www.front-porch-ideas-and-more.com/diy-walkway-idea.html
Note: Placing an inch or so of sand on top of the crushed stone allows you to level the walkway before you place your surface material. In our case, we were using pea gravel as a top coat and so we did not need to use sand.
We just love not only the cottage-look the walkway gives our house with the new porch landscaping, it’s also a perfect way to connect all the areas of our yard, especially when it’s wet!
