Taylor's Weekend Gardening Guide to Garden Paths: A New Way to Solve Practical Problems in the Garden
Paths are essential. They lead us from the street to the front door, from the garage to the kitchen, and around the garden. Here we learn about major and minor paths, the materials appropriate for each, and how to lay them. Garden designer Gordon Hayward shows how to use paths to create a garden design, pull together an existing garden, make a small garden look larger, and a boring lawn smaller.
