When creating a pathway along a lawn and in the backyard in general, do you recommend putting down plastic / landscape fabric before the pea gravel, or just the rock and weed it as necessary?

Yes it is best to use landscape fabric to control the development of weeds in your pathway. You will find it easy to remove any weeds that develop between the fabric and the pea gravel as these cant establish a roots through the fabric and into the soil. So I recommend you do purchase the fabric before placing the gravel mix. Hope this helps and good luck with your garden!
