At first glance, this area looks like a dry creek bed somewhere in the Cascades. Actually, it's a cleverly designed footpath that leads from a driveway to a house. The path is composed of flat stone slabs edged by rocks that shore up planting beds
Gravel can be a great material for a garden path, especially for gardeners who live in warm-weather climates so don't need to worry about shoveling snow. It drains quickly to keep your feet clean and dry. And gravel gives your garden a warm, natural look
Star-Studded Path - A galaxy of tiny, pale blue stars fills this garden path. This ground cover, Pratia pedunculata, also known as blue star creeper, blooms from late spring through much of summer. I like this non-traditional garden border!
There are dozens of low ground covers and creeping perennials resilient enough to withstand being walked on. Notice how much (or little) the pathway you& thinking of planting is used and choose the right perennial for your pathway.
