Are Your Walkways Too Formal?


Walkways and driveways help guide the flow of traffic to a certain destination.

While this is a good thing, be careful how you plant along these areas.

Walkways, when lined with borders, hedges, or other plant materials, can become too formal and prominent in the landscape.

Balance this out by using enough plant materials to lessen the impact of large areas of pavement, but still allow grass, ground covers, or less formal plantings to meet the pavement in areas.

Gardening-tip:



Use Edgings

Nothing finishes off a flower bed like low, long flowering edging plants.

Alyssum, lobelia, and dianthus are great for just this purpose.

For good continual flowering, also fertilize every few weeks with a balanced fertilizer like a 15-15-15.
