How to make Grass Paths in Minecraft

While they do prevent hostile mobs from spawning, grass paths are mainly used for decoration. They have a tint that is similar to grass blocks in a desert or savanna biome. Since they are just 15/16 of a block-long, objects like torches and buttons that demand a complete block cannot be mounted on them. When it comes to routing, villagers prefer grass paths over any other block. If a solid material block is set on top of a grass path block, it can turn to dirt. These are found naturally in Villages as they used for decoration, as well as making paths.
