4. A Garden Path (Cont.)

It's easy to make an informal path amid planting beds or woodland by clearing a swath of and and putting down a layer of mulch, pine needles, or loose stone. This kind of casual paving blends into the surroundings, providing just enough definition to show off the plant material on either side and to keep strollers in line. Keep in mind, though, that over time such surface materials naturally deteriorate and scatter, so you'll have to replenish them periodically.
