    If installed correctly everything is long term, concrete less so but still long lasting anyway.

    I agree, all of these will work. Just depends on what you and the Mrs. want it to look like.

    My personal preference for walkways and patios are tumbled Village Pavers. The cost for poured concrete in our area is a bit higher than pavers, and the pavers look so much better (not fake). Proper installation is the key to a great outcome, regardless of which method you choose. :)
