Paths That Move You: Walkways that we know and love… by Julie Campbell, Design Associate

There’s the path of least resistance, the road less traveled, the yellow brick road, boardwalks, sidewalks, The Freedom Trail, etc. etc. etc.

Paths are a wonderful landscape tool/mechanism/device because they literally transport you from one place to another, and sometimes, they take you on an unexpected journey.

Some paths encourage you to speed up, while others prompt you to slow down, and some *literally* force you to “stop and smell the roses”.

Some paths make you step from stone to stone, while other paths crunch beneath your feet.

Some paths meander slowly through the woods while others transport you quickly under bridges.

Whether it’s formal paths, rustic paths, contemplative paths, urban paths or country paths…all paths [seemingly, effortlessly] move us to our final destination.
