Leading Me Up The Garden Path...

Above - Blue metal gravel path is tonal and soften with healthy lavender bushes.
Above - A sleek path with over sized rectangle format blocks spaced apart for dwarf mondo grass over a water feature makes for a clean modern look.
Above - Metal borders help to create a sweeping path filled with large format square pavers swimming in shale off cuts, the structured path is softened by the flowering grass plantings - the style echoes elegant refined Zen-like calmness with refinement of Frank Lloyd Wright.

I'm a very keen gardener {thanks to my Mum & Grandma} and I often find elements in other gardens that I would like to incorporate into mine, or my client's... Here I found several different styles of garden paths using different materials that would suit any garden from the organic cottage, to the sleek minimalist modernist & refined elegant Zen, to the natural urban woodland...
What type of garden path would you like to be led up?
