New Year, New Beginnings, New Paths
Landscaping Design with a Journey in Mind
On New Years I found myself, one of millions, contemplating the year past and imagining the year to come. There are so many options open to us as far as how we want to move forward and to what end. Some goals will take us on rocky paths wrought with the unknown, some will be smooth and straightforward, while others still will meander along, sometimes splitting in entirely different directions.
But, what I find to be particularly interesting is that while I am imagining these paths, I realize I am imagining actual paths! I laugh to myself, thinking that this is clearly because of the industry I have the privilege of working in, but in many ways the visual still makes sense. Our clients and architects dream up landscape design with a journey in mind, which is why there are so many variations out there. Considering my unintentional imagining of landscapes, I thought it would be fun to look at some path designs, and maybe the images will help you conjure up ideas for the kinds of paths you would like to traverse.
I find that imagining the future in terms of a journey along captivating and changing paths gives a sense of comfort. We know that 2014 will be a year of new and exciting moments - and even if we stumble sometimes, the panorama of the paths we traverse will have many elements of beauty.
