Greetings Friends! Whether it is the sweet scent of roses or the intoxicating aroma of honeysuckle, the garden can offer a potent array of aromatherapy. One of the many ways I've used herbs in my garden is to create fragrant paths...
I have an abundance of rosemary in my garden and it was no accident that I used it to line the main garden path. I cannot tell you how many times people stop at the entrance, breathe in and exclaim, "Oh it smells so good!" as they brush past.
Throughout the garden, I have planted herbs as landscape with a scented purpose. Not to mention, they are deer and drought resistant! Here are some examples:
The walkway to my front door is planted with alternating rosemary and lavender.
Lemony thyme surrounds the stepping stones leading to my gazebo.
Sweet mint is planted in several "high traffic" garden areas. I know some gardeners consider it invasive but in my opinion, anything that stays green through Texas summers and smells that good can grow crazy as far as I am concerned!
Do you use herbs for landscaping?
