Walkway over water main
My driveway is on the side of my house, I have a 10-15' stretch of "lawn" that runs along the front of my house between the driveway and an asphalt walkway (which runs from my front door to the road).
This stretch is the main way to enter my house, so the lawn is completely worn away, just a dirt and mud, literally not a blade of grass or even a weed.
What I'd like to do is put in some sort of a basic walkway between the driveway and front walk... Mostly to cut down on the mud people track in, but also give the grass a chance to grow and a place to shovel in winter.
The trouble is that the water main runs directly under that space so I'd be crossing it perpendicularly. Here in Mass our lines are at least 4' deep, so I'm not terribly worried about hitting it, more about having to tear up a walkway should the line need repair--it's original to the house, 60+ years, and we do have low-ish pressure already, so I can imagine it being needed within 10 years. The sewer is on the other side of the house and we have no other buried services.
Any recommendations for what to use for the walk? It doesn't need to be too fancy, I'd just like it to be level and not a trip hazard, but also either be cheap or easy to repair in case it needs to come up in the relatively near future.
My advice is based on anecdotal knowledge or personal experience. I'm not a professional no matter how matter of factly I may say something
