I'm helping a friend re do there garden (i've been asking lots of questions on here for a while!). It's a long narrow garden and so i'm going to create 3 rooms, 1st is a sunken patio which leads out from the basement kitchen with french doors then up 2ft of stairs to the 2nd "room" which will be a flower/herb/veg garden with a smallish lawn, and the third is going to be a screen off area for their yurt. I need to connect these areas with a path. Are grass paths a viable option? do they not just wear very quickly especially in winter? Is there a particular mix of grass you'd recomend?
The other option i was thinking of is washed pea shingle with a brick edge. Or maybe you could suggest another option? It's a 17th Cen walled terrace garden, 5.5x20m.
