PLANT A PATH

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

Let loose your in­ner artist when you cre­ate path­ways in your gar­den. Sim­ply make bor­ders with plants or use them to vis­ually even out any changes in lev­els and help soften nearby struc­tures. Make sure you choose va­ri­eties that can stand up to foot traf­fic nearby. It’s lovely to use per­fumed plants and flow­ers in or­der to catch their fra­grance as you walk along. Or why not use pavers or stepping stones and grow aro­matic hardy ground cov­ers be­tween them; they’ll re­lease their fra­grance when you step on them. When choosing pavers, skip the stan­dard pat­terns and try che­quer­board or her­ring­bone.

Walk this way Colour, tex­ture and shape make a fun fea­ture of a me­an­der­ing path.
