11. Stepping stone path. Break up an expanse of lawn or make a narrow side lot feel special with the addition of a stepping stone path. Using various size stones and offsetting them (rather than lining them up perfectly) makes for a more relaxed, wild vibe.

12. The rustic, almost primitive placement of these steppingstones lends an air of antiquity to this secondary path. Their offset pattern is contemplative, giving the path a mystical sense similar to a labyrinth.

2. Plant a mix of root systems to beat weeds and filter water. More and more we’re thinking about what our gardens are doing at and below the soil line: how plants improve soil, increase drainage and keep runoff out of storm drains. Believe it or not, these concerns align with combating weeds in our landscapes. When our gardens are thick with plants of varying heights and varying leaf structures, weeds get shaded and crowded out — the leaves and plants aboveground steal the sunlight. Plants can also outcompete many weeds as they hunt for nutrients below ground through their roots. That underground competition works especially well for garden plants if you layer plants below ground too. Include plants with deep taproots, such as baptisia, milkweed and compass plant (Silphium laciniatum); those with more fibrous root zones, such as little bluestem and sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula); and oru native sedges (Carexx spp.) These various root systems not only outcompete weeds, but they also open up and improve the soil, creating more life and increasing water-holding capacity. An acre of mature prairie or meadow can absorb 9 inches of rain every hour before runoff occurs.Learn more about how plants can reduce stormwater runoff
Lauren Dunec Design added this to Make Your Garden a Haven for Backyard Birds
Include a variety of hiding places for birds taking shelter in your garden. Use mixed shrubs and perennials in your borders, and break up expanses of lawn by planting small-scale trees, such as apple or dogwood, in the turf.Find more landscape inspiration

5. Disappearing pathways. Use a steppingstone path or a winding walkway to draw visitors into the garden. The trick to evoking a feeling of anticipation: Leave the destination hidden. This garden pathway, for example, runs in a straight line but curves out of sight right before the back wall, making you wonder what lies behind it. The designer also used offset steppingstones set in the lawn to slow the journey.5 Garden Path Looks for an Enchanting Journey
