Paths are a useful element of the landscape, pleasantly guiding visitors through the garden. A well sited path can do more though, such as hiding or revealing views and garden features, calling attention to remarkable plants, and stimulating the senses.
Paths can be functional, following the shortest distance between two points. Or they can provide more leisurely journeys, taking visitors to hidden spots, guiding them around trees and plantings with gentle curves.
Avoid or build up low spots that could hold water so your feet stay dry. Place your path to go past a water feature or fragrant planting such as gardenia to make the stroll a delight for all the senses.
