An allée, a formal or an informal path between trees, leads the way in style
An allée is a pastoral walkway through evenly planted trees. Tree-lined driveways and garden paths are allées that bring travelers to their destination in style. (The word “allée” is French for “way to go.") Traversing an allée reinforces the feeling that one has arrived.
A true allée has opposing trees planted to create visual symmetry, as with this formal drive.
A rustic garden path forms an allée with a grove of birch trees leading to a low garden wall.
This allée, a brick path through saplings, arrives at a circular patio.
This allée between buildings is playful with rusted steel ball sculptures set on gravel.
Though an allée always has opposing trees, the path can be formal or informal in appearance. This allée has decomposed granite for the walkway, which is a natural-looking choice.
