Add visual appeal by running a path past areas of interest on its way from an exterior door to the destination. To create the path outline, first place a garden hose on the ground and play with the shape (Note: Perfectly straight, good-looking lines are harder to create than curves.) Once the final layout is determined, mark the grass on one side with marking paint. Then transfer the hose to the other side and mark it. In general, a comfortable path is at least 2'6" to 3' wide.
