Winniecat , inveiw of what you are putting in I would definatly insulant , also if it was a really bad winter you put some around the plants as well

Small path ideas?

Hello , have you thought about putting weed membrane underneath if you use gravel , let's the water through and helps stops the weeds , also any weeds that germinate are easily pulled up

you could plant some ground covering gerinums , but beware they will need cutting back on a regular basis 

Bark chipping path look nice but difficult to weed without use of weed killer 

whatever you do best of luck
