The fern, shown in the middle ground, and around the bend in the path, just beneath the Camellia sasanqua tree is called Holly Fern - Cyrtomium falcatum. The plants flanking the path in the foreground are Philodenron Xanadu

What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Woodland HighlightsWoodland paths naturally suggest a slower pace, yet they can be uneventful without a few highlights. Here groups of shade-loving caladiums have been repeated along the pathway, sweeping the eye easily from one side to the other and inviting us to see where the disappearing path leads. This contrast in foliage color and texture makes the journey more interesting, while the repetition of these groups makes the stroll memorable.Do you find yourself rushing along your garden path, or do you enjoy those few moments? By simply rearranging and repeating a few plants, you can transform the experience from predictable to exceptional.Browse thousands of beautiful path design photos | Houzz guides to flowers and plants
Designing with tropical bulbs. When placing tropical bulbs in your landscape, don't hesitate to pick up a few extra plants. After all, these plants don't skimp on the impact, so why would you want them to look like an afterthought? It's true that a single caladium poking out of a shade planting might evoke a feeling of whimsy, but three planted together for a mound of heart-stopping foliage becomes a focal point. Since tropical bulbs do tend to multiply, a single plant just looks unnatural anyway. The sizes of tropical bulbs vary considerably, but generally speaking they look best when surrounded by a mass of finely textured plants.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Great Design Plant: Cyrtomium Falcatum ‘Rochfordianum’
How to use it. Japanese holly fern, like most ferns, shows to best advantage when planted en masse, as seen to the left of this path. Groups of 12 or more are most effective if space permits. To emphasize diversity of texture in a woodland garden, consider planting another evergreen fern, such as autumn fern (Dryopteris erythrosora), opposite massed holly fern.

plant a crape myrtle at the corner of the house near the dog run area (to make more of a wooded path feel with the Jap maple)and put pavers on the path through fairy garden to give it more of a feel like this - the sizes of plants gradually get larger radiating out from the little village underneath the mini boxwood trees
