Understanding Sloping Walkways: Crowned Slope Understanding Sloping Walkways: Crowned Slope
When it comes to different walkways, it can be hard to decide on one design that fits your style and home. The crowned slope is a great choice if you are looking for something unique and stylish. Here is a little bit of information that can help guide you on this design.
Design and Style
The crowned slope walkway is usually set to the center and the sides are typically lower than the middle. This is a great walkway to have if you are into gardening and showcasing your flowers or plants. You can have the walkway crown along different areas where you want there to be a tree or flower coming out. Typically this will entail an upward slope with bricks circling around it.
Cost and Availability
The price of a crowned slope walkway isn't much higher than a typical stone or brick walkway. If you decide to do it yourself, it really isn't a big difference. However if you do hire someone to do it for you, the installation costs may be more because the design is a little harder to do. The materials though aren't more expensive or harder to find than a typical walkway that you may have installed in your home.
