Somethings Gotta Give A Secret Garden Path

Can you see the flagstone path below?

 This type of path is also good at making small lawns appear larger
 This house is perfectly the movie house, Somethings Gotta Give, except, below.
Front entry step is too narrow & out of scale with the home.
This is what I've been hired for.  Their house is perfection in all other details.
Did you observe this house was a 1950's ranch?  IT WAS.  Architect blew it up & out.  Will ask permission to get interior pics next time I'm on site. 
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Pics taken last month.  Will change a few of the foundation plantings.  They were installed to help sell the house.  Over planted and need constant pruning otherwise they will mature bigger than the house.  Not a novel issue.

I love flagstone paths, they just invite you to stroll. I'm taking a break from throwing pots to do some planting today, taking your advice about gardening.

I would have never guessed it was a ranch house in its former life. Amazing what can be done to transform houses! You are so blessed to have a job/work that you so clearly enjoy and that I love reading about. Such fun days seeing pretty homes and making them prettier!
