What factors should be considered when designing a sidewalk?
Sidewalks are key passageways for people, business, and goods. Safety, accessibility, and maintenance are primary factors to be considered when designing a sidewalk. There are standards sidewalk design should abide by, such as: accessible widths (minimums) of lanes, implementation of buffers, gentle sloping, etc.
What size gravel is best for a walkway?
A rule of thumb is that the smaller the gravel, the softer it is underfoot. Gravel with a diameter range of ¼ to ⅜ inches (.635 to .95 cm) is optimal for achieving a comfortable walkway. The ¼ inch-sized gravel is often called pea pebbles or pea stones.

What size should a typical public walkway be?
The minimum width for a walkway is 48 inches (121.9 cm), which allows for two pedestrians to walk side by side comfortably. It is recommended, however, to increase the width if possible in high use public areas to at least 72 inches (182.88 cm).
