    A few years ago I rejigged my garden to lay a path across the lawn to reach the newly aquired shed at the far end.

    The slabs were not particularly level when I layed them and they have moved since. I have toyed with the idea of creating a proper pathway but I wasn't sure how to landscaping it in. Also I was very reluctant to sacrifice anymore lawn.

    My wife has recently expressed an interest in a pergola. I didn't I think I would find a space for one but the other day it hit me. I have recently bought an arch to go at the front of the house like the one in the picture below.

    I worked out that I could fit 2 of these along my bit of path with a small gap in between. I would then have a specific shape that I could use to construct a properly landscaped path.

    These are pictures that I borrowed from Pinterest to give me inspiration.

    To save myself starting a really big job that I may never end, I thought I would buy the pergolas first and place them where I want them to live. This in itself would be an improvement aesthetically. I could then work on the pathway and landscaping in stages at a later date.

    These are thoughts that are consuming me at the moment. If anybody has any comments, concerns or suggestions, I would appreciate the input.
