Pale flagstone path
Steven Gunther

Inviting entrance

A half-inch of decomposed granite over a compacted base forms a firm clean surface that drains well when summer rains drench this garden in Rancho Mirage, CA.
The path's irregular shape, edged with pale flagstone, encourages visitors to slow down and enjoy the yellow-flowering palo verde agaves and opuntia and barrel cactus along the way.

Design: Michael Buccino Associates, Palm Desert CA (760/772-7166) for Paul and Carrie Stone. Installation by Randy Buccino.
