The pathway show in the above image is approximatly 4' wide and accomodates easy passthrough with garden carts and people. However, the purpose of the pathways is to mitgate compaction of the garden soil, so a pathway could be minimally effectivly as wide as a persons dimensions - 12" or so.

Love the simplicity of the walk - Is the brick on a sand base with sand swept in? It is so simple, clean, neat. Understated elegance. I have struggled with brick walks that don't last. Does the edging keep it in place?

The edging is made of reclaimed top (or cap) sections from concrete masonry unit walls. I don't care much for concrete block walls, but this application sure worked for me. The dimensions are 2"x12"x6", but have used other dimensions for similar applications.

Can you list the vegetables planted here?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Cream-of-the-Crop Vegetable Gardens
If you have great sun in the front yard and shade in the back, go ahead and plant your potager out front. Arranging vegetables in orderly groupings keeps the look appropriate for a front walkway.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Feast Your Eyes on Edible Gardens
A closer look at the garden reveals curved pathways between the garden beds. From a distance, the individual beds blend into a sea of greens and blues. Up close, the paths keep the plantings from overrunning the space while accommodating pleasant strolls and access to the harvest.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Dry Your Garden Herbs for Casual Fall Decor
Cut the healthiest branches you can find, about three to four times the amount you wish to end up with for your bouquet, as the drying process will cause shrinkage — perhaps more than you might imagine. Tip: Pick big bouquets for displaying and smaller bouquets just for cooking. Keep in mind that dried herbs tend to be about three to four times stronger than fresh, so a little bouquet will go a long way in cooking.
