Paths Done Right
Just as in life, the paths in your landscape design can take you and those who walk those pathways to various destinations. As part of your landscape design, you may want to create a pathway that leads from your drive to your front door or from your driveway to your back patio. A pathway immediately gives you an excuse to add some textured or colored foliage to your landscape. A lighted pathway to your front door provides a warm welcome to guests visiting you in the evening. A curved path does not give you an immediate view of what lies ahead, therefore they add an element of intrigue to a garden. Curved paths can lead to a variety of surprising features. If a lake adjoins your property, or if you have a backyard pool, a pathway leading there would be a nice addition to the landscape.
