Labyrinths: a quiet path that can add another dimension to your outdoor space

When you plan your outdoor space you might immediately think of a patio, an outdoor kitchen, a quiet place for relaxation, flower or vegetable gardens. But the outdoor labyrinth is an option you might not have thought of.

A modern labyrinth is a pathway that is walked for relaxation and renewal. It is not a maze. The only thing a labyrinth walker can get lost in is their own thoughts. Labyrinths can be as simple as a path or elaborately hardscaped. They can be lined with flowers or placed in the grass.

They can be laid out by hand or with the aid of commerical templates. Flickr has a collection of labyrinth photos for inspiration.
