What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Magical Garden Paths
If we were here, we'd either be walking down this path or already sitting at the end, reading a Jane Austen novel. Have a great garden path already? Upload a photo to your profile and share it with us! Or keep strolling through the latest collection of beautiful garden paths.
If you are impatient for a beautiful path, you have options! One option is to plant fast-growing trees such as birch, poplar, aspen or willow. They do not have as grand of a presence as oaks, walnut or hemlock, but they give the same feel of a towering allée. Make sure to cut off any side branches under 10-12 feet for a high canopy. If you leave all of the branches to grow, the path will seem like a forest as opposed to an allée. Also notice the entrance created by the two sections of fence in the foreground. This entrance area gives the stroller a stopping and starting point similar to the large trees used in the goldenrod field.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Natural Garden Style
A gentle path through trees and grasses leads to a sitting spot. It's about as simple as it can be, yet it's highly effective.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Hardscaping Shows Its Soft Side
Simple. Easy to build. Permeable. Sustainable. Inexpensive. What’s not to love? This naturalistic mulch path, with 100 percent recycled content, is über-inviting. Strong geometry executed with relaxed materials provides the best of all worlds: a direct path between points A and B and an invitation to linger.
Journey's end. This path leads through a stand of trees where only dappled light illuminates, and it continues toward a distant, sunnier spot in the landscape. By creating a walkway through the trees, a series of strong lines is emphasized and the low, L-shape bench becomes the natural focal point.
Houzz added this to Allée
A rustic garden path forms an allée with a grove of birch trees leading to a low garden wall.
ExplorationNarrow spaces to move through and overhead planes to walk under become powerful additions to a garden's circulation. Walking from one place in the garden to another becomes a unique experience. Your kids will always remember playing in a space like this.

1. Hint at a destination and create mystery. Twists and turns, a hidden path, a tree-lined alley, a corner hidden by shrubs — these are places tailor made for independent thinking and exploring. Where does that path go? What’s over there? Where can I go that no one will find me?See how to design a garden that flows and intrigues
June Scott Design added this to 8 Reasons to Plant a Great Tree
Funnel breezes through your property. Plant a row of trees on one side of the house and a wall on the other side of the house, to create a wind tunnel. This will encourage stronger cooling breezes through the property and around the house. You can also plant a grove of trees to act as a low-tech air conditioner for the entire property, creating a cool zone; breezes can then distribute coolness throughout the property and around the house.
