pathway finally done

posted by: DAVISSUE_zone9 on 03.23.2005 at 12:56 am in Garden Accoutrements Forum

Last year I posted pictures of the leaves I'd made in anticipation of making a pathway. I promised then I'd post a picture of the finished path. Finally last month I got those leaves in the ground. Here's how it turned out. The leaves were made using the formula provided in the faq section- white portland cement, white sand, buff liquid coloring. I used several species of leaves to make the steppingstones.

NOTES:

I love this pathway! These are the plants he used.

Colocasia, Solanum quitoense, Strelitzia, Morus alba, Paulownia, Catalpa, Fatsia japonica, Piper sanctum, Canna, Acanthus and Arum pictum, are what I remember off the top of my head. I do live in California, so the selection is probably better than a colder area of the country. The Solanum quitense (available mailorder from Annies annuals) and the Piper sanctum gave the best leaves, the cannas were the least impressive.

Here's some new pics, taken after the plants I'd cut back out of the way regrew. Sorry they're so washed out, the sun was brighter than I realized at the time.

NOTES:

Same leaf path after plants filled back in.
