Unless you're enjoying a life of self-imposed hermitude, it's a fair assumption you'll have people visiting your home. If that's the case, you need to ensure they can navigate their way to your front door easily! 

A gorgeous garden path, preferably laid by a professional, will not only make reaching your home a piece of cake, it will also finish your grounds off perfectly, thereby creating a welcoming, attractive aesthetic. 

Take a look at these lovely styles and see if any give you inspiration for your home (then start planning!)…

1. Wooden paving is always beautiful, but with integrated lighting it's astounding!

2. A poured concrete path will have longevity and need very little maintenance. You can experiment with shapes too

3. Wide steps make perfect front garden paths and we love the finishing touch of lining them with shrubs

4. We always fancied living in a castle so this floating path would make all of our moat dreams come true

5. Simple flagstones are a path classic as they're simple to lay and can be used in great volume

6. A perfect dark wood path, at the very edge of a boundary, really directs the foot traffic where you want it

7. If your path will lead up to a pale-toned home, we suggest matching the colour with your path. These step-front lights are lovely!

8. Be as different as you want to be! This path looks like the Northern lights, all year round

9. Slate looks so sleek and sumptuous. Plus, it's easy to work with so adding lights won't be a struggle

10. Combining wood and stone to create the perfect path helps denote where certain areas start and end

11. Simple concrete floating steps look incredible. They won't be too slippery in the wet either!

12. Paving inset into a lawn looks wonderful. Here, we love the matching car path

13. An all-wood path will feel super organic and warm, but be sure to have a plan in place for wet weather to prevent slippage
