You need the perfect area to walk on in your garden. It could be gravel or paved path.

Gravel is a cheap option and very easy to add or remove according to your needs. It is aesthetically very amazing.  The only problem with gravel is that walking on it is sometimes not easy and can be dangerous as well. Maintaining the gravel and using the equipment on it is also not very easy.

The better but a little pricy option is a paved path. It is very easy to walk on it and it also looks very neat and beautiful. So you can choose either of the options according to your budget. 

Decorate the path:

If you already have a paved path then decorate it by planting flowers mentioned above along the lining of the path. You can also place beautifully shaped vases and make it more attractive.
