How wide should the walk be?  Primary paths that receive heavy use, such as a front walk, should be at least 4 to 5 feet wide to permit two people to walk side by side. For secondary paths such as this one, 2 to 3 feet wide is usually fine.

Garden path as a focal point. · Evergreen shrubs - including holly, dwarf sasanqua camellia, Sandankwa viburnum, and cherry laurel - rise from sweeps of mondo grass and asparagus fern ground covers.

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”  — Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D

Plan for repetition. Too many individual plants can be as overwhelming as too many colors. Using the same plant throughout the space creates a sense of rhythm. Chose one to three plants that you can use throughout the flower bed to achieve this effect.

Mystery Flower - what is it??

We live in a newer neighborhood with few fences. I like that the landscape is void of the visual clutter fences can create. However, I do secretly long for a lovely white picket fence with a precious little garden gate.

Beautiful! Use old doors as the gate to a secret garden! Love! Find the doors @ West End Salvage- you can find it all there!

Beautiful.  I want to lunch out here.

Add an arbor to the brick patio. Every indoor room has a doorway, so why not create one for your outdoor room? An arbor or trellis is an inviting entrance to your space, and you can add color with climbing plants such as clematis or climbing roses
