Garden paths and walkways

A Sunset book on ‘Walks, Walls & Patio Floors’ says, “Much more than a mere passage from one area to the next, a walk or garden path is a versatile landscaping tool. A walk divides the garden, providing a natural break in the landscape.”  While walking through Reynier Village, I couldn’t help but notice some of the creative ways homeowners build the walkways to their front door.

Some paths are formal, some are  Zen-like.  Others, using broken pieces of flagstone seem quite natural set into their native plantings. For more ideas on garden paths, check out Sunset’s Great Garden Paths
