AFTER: New Curving Gravel PathTraditional Landscape, Portland
View of curved gravel path toward the backyard, showing boulder placement and plantings. Curves are anchored with strategically placed 'Winterred' and 'Hogyoku' Japanese maples. Along the path are plantings of Black Mondo Grass, Epimedium, red penstemons, 'Solfatare' crocosmia, and 'Firefly' heucheras.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Take a simple approach. One of the most basic and budget-friendly ways to incorporate curves into your home design is to weave a meandering path through your landscape. Even the smallest townhouse patio could benefit from such a walkway. For maximum impact, let your path lead to a destination that initially is obscured behind trees, shrubbery or a wall, and design the path to reveal the destination slowly.
