Paths can be a very important part in any Arizona landscape project. The obvious reason is function, they get us and our guests from point "A" to point "B" safely and effectively. But alas, there is another, very good "pro" to creating paths in the landscape. It gives the design a "flow" and the plants an outline in which to be positioned - all working together. It also guides our eyes along the terrain, allowing us to wonder and look beyond where we are standing into the garden.
So weather the path is used frequently or not, sometimes it just makes sense to incorporate one into the design.

The above path is from a recent landscape design in Chandler, Arizona.
The Flagstone is called "chocolate" and the steps are kept as large and as close as possible for easy strolling. This particular path actually leads to a very nice paver patio with seating and movable fire pit. The whole project turned out quite unique and the path really gets a good bit of credit in my book.

  5. Hei there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about landscaping in your area. I'm glad to stop by your site and know more about landscaping. This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
    Thales, an early Greek philosopher known for his view that "all is water," spent a considerable time thinking about the nature and scope of landscaping. Some of his students believed that in order for human activity to be considered landscaping, it must be directed toward modifying the physical features of the land itself, including the cultivation and/or manipulation of plants or other flora. Thales rejected this notion, arguing that any aspect of the material world affecting our visual perception of the land was a proper subject for landscaping. Both Plato and Aristotle praised Thales' analysis as a model for philosophy. In the early 20th century, British philosopher G.E. Moore cited Thales' reasoning as one of the few historical examples of how philosophical inquiry has led to genuine human understanding and progress.
