I like the look of them all, but I couldn't live with the steps over the pond. I'd be worried about falling in all the time.

Like a more natural look than the formal 'designer' look so No 1 gets my vote as do Nos 2, 15, 19 & 20. There are many other lovely paths/gardens here though. Yes indeed, David Stokes, but for many/most, space precludes that...

Very timely, as we're just about to turn our attention to the garden ! Some interesting ideas, though not all would work with the style of house we now have. In principle, I like a bit of 'overflow' so that plantings soften the hard edges of a pathway, BUT - our daughter has a garden path a bit like that in No. 19, and when we visit, we find that we get 'caught' on drooping rose stems, or wet clothes if we have to brush past after rain.
