GRASS PATH edged with stones along border. Love the winding grass pathway. Love Grass Paths thin and wide, long and short, brief or endless. Soft meandering path by which to enjoy the garden. I am obsessed with Grass Paths.
I like use of rocks gravel to slow water down as it moves through landscape on slight slope. Flat stone with depression in foreground a perfect spot for bees & butterflies to get water (without drowning in a deeper birdbath)
Berms—landscaper speak for small mounds—are used to create a border between properties or break up a monotonous yard. Check out Tamarack Landscaping for ideas and inspiration, then click over to SF Gate for the 411 on creating your own berms.
