Up The Garden Path

Carefully thought-out paths strike a balance between necessity and style, seamlessly linking house and outbuildings with the garden and its features, whilst also blending with the existing architecture and materials. All too often, though, paths are born out of need, ending up as muddy worn tracks or utilitarian concrete runways, their potential as attractive garden features overlooked. Paths offer a chance to break away from the dull rectangular shapes of bricks, windows and doors by creating curving thoroughfares that flow throughout the plot, maybe framed in edging plants. Enticing paths are those which lead the eye towards an, as yet, unseen view, or to a secret corner. Surprises along the way — a small statue or sundial, for example — are an added bonus.
