Hi, im a newbie so bare with me!!
Last year i discovered a love for growing my own and have decided to make a part of my garden a veg patch/kitchen garden. I have designed it all with a greenhouse and a water feature for wildlife but am struggling on what paths to use. I originally wanted a red brick path with raised beds but am seeing a lot of bark and shingle being used. Is there a reason for this (slugs maybe) and what pathways would you recommend. Many thanks x

Welcome to the forum :)

Bark and shingle are cheaper but red brick is nice if you can afford it and it's easier to keep clean :)

Brick / pavers are great, as @zigs said, if you can afford it.

Standing on brick is unforgiving too. Mulch, or turf is much softer and easier on you.

But you said you're a first year gardener. Bricks and pavers are rather permanent. It may be worth buying the time and using mulch or even gravel for paths for a few years until you find a method and layout you like.
