I love the use of low-growing ground cover to define a garden path. This one is a mown path through the wildflower meadow at Great Dixter leading to a gate. Buttercups and Ox eye daisies, Leucanthemum vulgare
You can grow a wildflower patch in your garden - it works best on poor soil. Sow the flower seeds and water in. Check for weeds and water occasionally until they establish. Let them self-seed around at the end for flowers every year!
