Your walkways and paths don’t have to be boring and plain. There are several things you can do to spruce them up and make them more inviting. Residential landscape design professionals are available to help you liven up your pathways and make them shine.
Light the Way
Lighting your paths and walk ways adds ambiance and can create a peaceful atmosphere. Subtle lighting will accentuate the path without detracting from the area it goes through.
Learn to Wander
Wandering in a straight line is rarely fun. When a person truly wanders, they go in different directions to see what can be seen. Maintain efficiency as much as possible, but allow the path to move freely through your landscape.
Choose Native Plants
Plants that are native to your area require less maintenance and will thrive with minimal care. They also blend well with their surroundings. While it’s fine to add a variety of plants, it’s important to make sure that whatever is included requires the same amount of care as other plants close by.
A small bench, fountain or statue can add character to a landscaped area. It also gives the person on the path something to focus on and admire. Add whatever makes the area stand out. Set the mood and let your mind wander along with the path.
Choose the highest quality plants and hardware. This guarantees fewer repairs and plant replacements as the seasons change. Higher quality items will both retain their look for longer periods and withstand extreme weather conditions.
