    My other walkways that were at the house to start with are around 3 feet and have worked out ok for me but you may want to go at least an extra 6 inches wider if at all possible as its a little more comfortable than being so tight against the lawn on either side of your wheels especially if its dark out.

    I had my septic pumped today and found where the cover was. Just like I thought its gonna come very close to the walkway and 48 inches would cover the cover a little bit, so 42 inches its gonna have to be.

    Well my estimate is at 3100.00 now. If i add 6" its going to add more to the cost.

    We have an aggregate walk @ my mom's house - works great, looks great.

    here is our patio. its a roman stamp w/ 2x2 45 deg angle cuts. its 2 color 1 integaral, mixed in the cement the othe is cast on top which gives the texture highlights. we have antislip in the sealant, its not slippery at all.

    Heres the final product, its long. I ended up doing brushed cement. It was about half the cost of pavers.
