GARDEN PATHS & STEPPING STONES by Tara Dillard

Creating beautiful landscape paths from conception to installation is easy.

Pathways around your home can be the most striking outdoor element, providing a visual and physical guide through your surroundings. Instead of settling for boring straight-line sidewalks, why not create your own geography with paths that add art to necessity!

Let this lush visual resource for gardeners and garden designers inspire you with its 125 different paths that feature styles from very casual to natural trails to elegantly formal walkways.

Do-it-yourself installation instructions cover materials, elements of design, each step of construction, and maintenance tips. The value of your home will increase , and so will the pleasure you receive from walking outdoors, as the ordinary activity of going from one place to another reveals your sense of beauty and character.

  1. Dear Tara, your book is beautiful. I did a brick walkway around mn rocks in the back yard. Goodnight they are all sunken and lopsided. All that work. I is very wet back there when it rains, I put the fabric and sand and some cement. It looks like hell.
    Love your post.

  2. I loved this book! Fully intend to review it at some point. what this book did for me was give me an entirely new perspective about garden paths... and that is after reading a plethora of garden books voraciously for *years*. Truly a wonderful and useful addition to the garden bookshelf.
