If you're thinking of building a garden path, but you don't fancy the hassle and hard work of laying concrete or slabs, you might want to consider using wood chips. This medium is easy to lay and maintain and is generally cheaper to buy than stone slabs or cobbles. A quick Google search will find you plenty of suppliers advertising wood chips for sale in your area. Here's how to make a beautiful, rustic garden path from wood chips.
What you'll need
The path does not strictly require edging; although, this can make it look tidier and prevents the wood chip from spreading. Your local DIY or gardening store will have a good choice of different types of edging to choose from, but split poles on a wire roll look good and stay in place well.
You can choose from natural-coloured wood chips or perhaps opt for a dyed version to match your exterior décor scheme.
How to do it
Wood chips tend to be pretty durable; although, you may need to top-up the path every couple of years as the wood degrades.
You can make an attractive, functional woodchip path in your garden by following the guidelines given above. Most wood chips are treated with preservative to slow down the degradation process so the only maintenance involved is to remove any stray weeds that pop up.Share

This blog sheds light on matching any switch, whether matching a replacement switch to the rest of your house or upgrading to new ones.
