Todays project - a path through the hosta beds

caliloo(z6/7)April 29, 2012

In my attempt to keep the kids from running through the bed, I decided to put a "dry creek" style path between them. No, this is not totally about hostas, but the path goes between two beds where I am moving my new guys!

Yours is a lot more open and the shade seems more dappled than mine. Very nice!

Did you put a foundation beneath the rock path?

Yes. we dug it out and put screenings underneath. This will be total shade come June - the trees are just leafing out here.

Thanks for the comments!

I've come to think that paths are the most important part of a garden. They're an invitation to walk and look -- and make weeding lots easier. Yours is beautiful. Congrats! N

Very nice. Thanks for posting your photo. I very much like that the path was placed where it was needed. Sometimes garden paths are too contrived and just don't look right.
