Growing on the High Plains: Down the Primrose Path

Feb 7, 2019

However you approach the creation of your garden path, proper planning will ensure an enchanting result.

Any High Plains gardener who tends an ever-shifting landscape and seasonal plots is intimately acquainted with the cycle of new life, harvest, and rebirth. Among the flora and vegetation, many like to adorn the space with stone structures, weatherproof trinkets, assorted doo-dads, and treasured tchotchkes that make it our own. Today on Growing on the High Plains, we’ll delve into a more functional embellishment: garden paths. Whether it’s for function or fashion, having a paved, mulched, gravel, or cobblestone path can be a charming addition to your growing site.  (However, beware of primrose, as it’s not quite what it seems.)
