The first step is deciding on the material that fits your yard and home the best. You also need to consider your budget at this point. There are so many options out there. Some of them include brink, pallet wood, gravel, mulch, pavers, stone and pebbles. The price range and style vary greatly. For example pavers are more exact and more expensive then gravel.
