Garden Corridors

When landscaping a yard, walkways often get overlooked. We concern ourselves with pools, patios, and plant selections, but we neglect to consider how to connect the different spaces in our yard.

By ignoring paths, a garden can become disjointed because of the lack of thought put into the transitions and connections. Not only do walkways guide people throughout your yard, but they can also be used to create a mood or atmosphere. You'll want to start by determining if you are trying to create a formal or informal feeling.


Then you'll need to make a number of important decisions regarding shape, dimensions and materials, which can range from simple gravel to decorative stamped concrete or wood, the desired traffic flow, the amount of foot traffic your walkway will receive, and safety.
