How do you keep leaves off that beautiful path made of loose stones? - I have an area of my garden that has three huge Kwanzan cherry trees overhanging it. They drop a ton of leaves during the fall, which I collect and mulch, but I would like to put a soft (no digging, which would hurt the roots) path like the one pictured alongside them and can't figure out how I would get the (usually) wet leaves off its surface without raking the path up with them. Suggestions? Thanks!!

Well, I live in Texas and mine was about 5 ft tall when I put it in...it's grown about an inch per year here...they are VERY slow growing, but that is ok by me...we have 12 different species on our acre and they are all planted as understory trees amongst our old oaks.

If I'm not mistaken, that is a Fire Glow Japanese Maple. His name is due to the intense orange color they usually get during fall and earlier spring. Japanese Maple take a lot time to grow, that's why as bigger they are , as more expensive they get. The plant in the picture could be approximately between 7 to 9 years old, the growing also depend of the soil's quality.

Not necessarily - with some carpentry skills, time & patience, you could probably do it yourself.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Tree: Japanese Maple
The Japanese maple is a native woodland tree. The lush green color of the ferns and similarly arching silhouettes layer beautifully with the tree while still allowing it to serve as a focal point.
Temper balance and symmetry with imperfection. The Japanese maples on either side of the path, in addition to providing a bright spot of color in an otherwise green landscape, are almost matching in color and placement but contrast completely in size. The lantern and upright boulder match in size and color but differ in form, from the obviously man-made to the obviously natural. Even the color of the Asian-inspired gridded fence matches that of the bark of the tree, and both blend with the soft colors of the plantings.
Create a portrait. A combination of architecture, horticulture and art turns what could easily have been a prosaic section of fence into an intriguing moment in the landscape. The inspired placement of an Asian stone lantern is the detail that creates emphasis and a point of view. Every other element draws the eye to this spot, from the vivid red canopy of the Japanese maple tree to the stepping-stone path.
Neutrals also work well because they let the landscape itself become a focal point. An incredible red Japanese maple sings against this deep-gray background.More:12 Great Fences and GatesLandscape Detail: Do Fence Me In
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Southern California Gardener's October Checklist
Some varieties of Japanese maple can be disappointing in our mild climate, with their leaves simply turning brown and crunchy and clinging to the tree until spring growth pushes them off. For great fall color in your garden, shop for Japanese maples cloaked in fall color.
Red in NatureRed in the natural world inspires awe. It’s dramatic red rock formations in the desert, the flash of a cardinal’s wing, the blaze of maple trees in the fall. Red is used to attract, as in juicy strawberries and vibrant red tulips — but also to warn, as in poisonous mushrooms and hot chili peppers. Thinking about this dual nature of red, it makes sense that people tend to either love it or hate it in their homes. Red can be cheerful and positive, like plump apples and rosy cheeks, or full of daring, like a red sunrise or the heart of a bonfire.The particular red of fall leaves tends to be on the warm side, with a bit of orange. The contrast of red leaves against a sky — either brilliant blue or steely, overcast gray, makes the leaves even more vivid by comparison. Natural companion colors are yellow, orange and green; and later in the season, brown. Real red apples (not supermarket Red Delicious) that ripen in the early fall are also on the warm side, with hints of pink and green.
