How do you construct a path?

My answer is that I do not believe in woven membranes for paths.

I think that the more tradional method of a hardcore base followed by sand and finally washed gravel

is best.

This gives a proper passage of water through the soil.

If the construction is done correctly there should be no signs of weeds.

Paths are often built badly using membranes.

The result looks a mess after weeds start to appear.

Woven membranes do have there place in borders to help reduce weeds.

This does not mean they should be used everywhere.
