Softened edges

Plant low grasses or perennials along your  path. Lavender and golden Mexican feather grass spill onto the gravel walkway at left, while creeping thyme peeks out from beneath them. Other billowy path edgers include Acorus gramineus ‘Ogon’, blue fescue, Carex albula ‘Frosty Curls’, Japanese forest grass, lamb’s ears, and sage.
