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.
Example for an herb spiral. The principle: plants, best tolerate drought, get to the top - moisture-loving plants at ground level. Spiral clockwise in the northern hemisphere to work with the natural flow of water.
