Pathways do more than lead you from one place to another.  This is your chance to be creativite.  Anything goes as long as it is safe to navigate.  The simplest path of mulch adds to the charm of a woodland retreat, while a mosaic path can get your imagination  stirring.  Curves in the pathway echo natures  esthetic and compel the traveler to slow their pace and enjoy the journey.  A "cottage garden" makes the most of pathways because it encourages us to notice individual plants and pieces of art.

Pathways over water are particularly enchanting allowing you take yourself right into the reflection on the water.  Express yourself by using hard and soft surfaces, color, or natural textures.  
Draw on the unexpected- you will delight all who traverse your work of art.
