Grass paths are decorative blocks.


In Bedrock Edition, grass paths can be mined with Silk Touch tools and drop itself. In Java Edition, grass paths drop dirt, no matter what, and can only be obtained using commands or pick block.

Natural generation[edit]

Grass paths are naturally generated in villages when pathways replace grass blocks. Their purpose is aesthetics and pathfinding for villagers.

Grass blocks[edit]

Grass paths can be created by using any type of shovel on the side or top of a grass block that has air above it. The shovel then loses 1 durability.


Grass paths are primarily used for decoration, although they do prevent hostile mobs from spawning. They are a similar color to grass blocks placed in a desert or savanna biome. They are only 1516 of a block high, therefore items that require a full block like torches and buttons cannot be placed on them.

A grass path block converts to dirt if any block with a solid material is placed on top.
