I believe that the thing about bricks (and indeed any path material) is that they must be frost proof or they won't last long.
Would it be an idea to have really heavy duty 'football field' type grass for your path and softer, finer grass for the lawn; they would be different shades of green and so easy to maintain.
If you go for gravel, even with an edging some of it will creep on to the lawn; it does on mine! So being madly extravagant I would suggest a herringbone design of bricks
