DEFINED BY BLOOMS
Decorative paths woven between the borders of the garden help to prevent lawn damage, particularly during the wetter, colder months, when bare patches become more noticeable. Natural materials, such as fallen logs, found in the garden or on a countryside walk can be used to demarcate the paths. They can be carefully cut into sections and shaped around the winding curves. Sowing colourful flowers along the fringes of the border will also help to define the path and provide interest as they are traversed. Here, gleaming white snowdrops, paired with the vibrant yellow of winter aconites, cluster around the edge, with some stray flowers seeping onto the path itself, which is made up of wood chippings. Choosing cool-season bloomers will ensure that there is still plenty of colour in the garden when most flowers are slumbering.
