Wonderful mix of material for garden path. Cobblestone sectioned between random pattern of bricks (reclaimed bricks offer a softer mellow tone of age along with irregular edges) and plantings of different types of thyme. Bordered with bricks as well.
For side garden? Glorious Garden Paths : Create Motion Run bricks, pavers, or other materials in a wavy pattern to create interest and give your pathway a sense of movement as you walk through the landscape.
I like this idea for our front yard, to create a path from the driveway to the front walk. I originally wanted flagstone, but flagstone paths are too uneven for the high heels I usually wear. This would be far more even for walking on.
